Everett police officer charged in sex act, resigns from force

The charge was brought against Blaine E. Lassich, who resigned from the department in March, said Sgt. Boyd Bryant, Everett police spokesman. The charge was filed April 27 in Everett District Court.

The incident reportedly took place after Lassich told the woman to get in the front seat of a patrol car, said Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Craig Matheson. He said Lassich then forced the woman to perform a sex act. The act was interrupted by a radio call, Matheson said, and the woman reported the incident to police shortly afterward.
