Accident puts teacher in hospital

by Jeff Switzer
   A Bothell woman is in serious condition after an Inglemoor High student lost control of his vehicle and hit the Arrowhead School teacher on NE 155th St. last Thursday.
   At 2:26 p.m., the Bothell woman was walking eastbound on the road during a heavy downpour when a 17-year-old Bothell man lost control of his westbound vehicle, striking the woman and pinning her against the guardrail. She was transported to Harborview Medical Center, and as of last Friday had multiple fractures and was in serious condition.
   Drugs and alcohol have been ruled out as contributing factors, and while speed may have been a factor, the specific speed is not known. The posted speed for the road is 25 MPH.

DNA match results in arrest warrant

by Jeff Switzer
   BOTHELL--In connection with a 1991 rape of an Everett woman, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of a 30-year-old Bothell man after his DNA turned up a cold hit in the state's DNA databank.
   Brian Eugene Breault has been charged with first-degree rape in connection with the morning rape of an Everett daycare worker. Police had retrieved a rag used to clean the victim and had several suspects at the time, though none matched with the DNA.
   According to prosecutors, the man had been released during the summer after serving time for second-degree assault. Police reportedly questioned him and had a search warrant for a blood draw. The man denied being involved in the rape. He has since disappeared and police expect further information this week.
