With a helicopter overhead and dozens of federal, state and local law enforcement officers swarming around Goldendale, Phillip Arnold Paul, 47, seemed ready to surrender when he walked out to the Goldendale-Bickleton road about 22 miles east of town shortly after 4 p.m., just as search personnel arrived at the scene, Klickitat County Sheriff Rick McComas told The Associated Press.
"He came out of the brush, onto the roadway, as law enforcement officers were going by," McComas said."His intent was to voluntarily give himself up because he knew we were going to find him."
But Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie D. Knezovich said Paul had just tried to thumb a ride from an area resident who alerted authorities. Knezovich said the fugitive seemed to be trying to remain on the loose.
Still, he said, Paul was arrested without incident:"As far as I know, he was cooperative."
