Crimestoppers of Tri-Cities is offering up to a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of a 41-year-old man who allegedly rammed a police car Wednesday morning as police tried to arrest him.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Fore tried to arrest Richard James Rotter Wednesday morning in Pasco when he allegedly rammed the vehicle and fled, Kennewick Crime Specialist Mike Blatman said. Rotter, who has multiple felony warrants out of both Benton and Franklin counties, fled in a 1998, white Ford Escort with the Washington license plate ADD0062.
Rotter is also believed to have been involved in a chase with the Pasco Police Department earlier this week, Blatman said.
Rotter is listed as 5-foot-10, 235 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information on Rotter’s whereabouts should contact Crimestoppers at 509-586-8477, 800-222-8477 or www.tricitiescrimestoppers.org. All calls are confidential and callers do not have to give their names.
