EVERETT — David Elmer’s criminal career began in 1986, when at just 14, he was convicted of attempted burglary.
Now 45 and with more than 20 felony convictions on his rap sheet, mostly for drugs and property crimes, the Gold Bar man may be poised to to add half a dozen more.
Elmer was charged this week with a grab bag of crimes, all stemming from a Nov. 10 spree that allegedly began with his terrorizing an ex-girlfriend in Everett. It morphed into a dangerous police chase that included ramming two patrol cars, and ended with threats to kill the state trooper who chased him down at gunpoint.
The frequent felon was on community custody at the time, deputy prosecutor Rachel Cormier Anderson said in Snohomish County Superior Court papers.
She charged Elmer with second-degree assault, attempting to elude police, first-degree malicious mischief and harassment, all for actions allegedly directed at police.
