Whatcom County sheriff’s deputies caught up with a 21-year-old man after he drove his car off the road into a ditch and allegedly fled from police.  Sheriff’s deputy Ryan Monogue said another deputy was pursuing Travis Boucher, who was allegedly driving recklessly, when his red Chevy Blazer left the road and ended up in a ditch on Blaine Road near the intersection with Drayton Harbor Road. No injuries were reported. Boucher allegedly ran from his car into a stand of trees and blackberry bushes, Monogue said. The foot pursuit did not last long as Boucher was quickly apprehended after fleeing from his car.
