TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Washington State Patrol troopers are waiting at the base of a tree at Tacoma for a man who climbed the tree while running away.

KOMO Radio reports the man fled from a traffic stop Thursday night climbed about 15 feet up a tree and refused to come down.

Negotiators are trying to talk the man into coming down Friday and they’re prepared to wait him out.
