News Release
Lengthy pursuit after felony assault ends in suspects arrest - 05/10/19

This morning at approximately 0623 hours, Deputies responded to the report of an assault with a baseball bat.  While on scene it was determined the felony assault was allegedly committed by a female, quickly identified as Hillary C. Rick.  DOB 05/12/88.

A Deputy responding to the area, who was familiar with Rick, saw her vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed.  Upon trying to stop the vehicle, the vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit ensued.  That Deputy as well as an Officer from the Battle Ground Police Department pursued the suspect vehicle up SR 503 into Cowlitz County where a “PIT” maneuver was utilized in an attempt to stop the vehicle.  The driver of the suspect vehicle then rammed into the Deputies patrol vehicle and continued south on SR 503 towards other responding units. 

Deputies were able to successfully deploy spike strips and “PIT” the vehicle again just after the bridge south of the initial collision.  The driver then intentionally rammed two patrol vehicles before being forced into the ditch where the driver, Hillary Rick, and her passenger were taken into custody.

Rick was transported to the hospital by North Country EMS for medical observation before being booked into the Clark County Jail on several counts of Assault II and Attempt to Elude police.
