The Adams County Sheriff's Office is seeking to locate this guy, he went to great lengths to try to elude them, for now.

  The suspect even tried blinding pursuing officers with a flashlight

Wednesday afternoon, around 5:23 PM, Adams County Sheriff's Deputies were alerted about a suspicious driver in a vehicle near  N Batum Rd and E Rosenoff Rd. The location is just west of Ritzville.

Deputies made contact with the driver, identified as Daniel Wayne Gill, and learned he was driving on a suspended license. But Gill fled the scene in his vehicle and according to the ACSO, kept driving recklessly.  At one point during the pursuit, he tried blinding officers by using a powerful flashlight.

"...eluding law enforcement, obstruction, and driving with a suspended license."
