Tadjiki, Darius Jamshid, 36, Sisters
     On 02/02/2012 at approximately 11:55 pm the deputies from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a report of a fight in front of Hardtails located at 175 N. Larch St in Sisters. The suspect in the fight, Tadjiki, left the scene in a red Nissan pickup prior to the arrival of the deputies. Deputies made an initial search of the area and did not locate Tadjiki. Approximately 25 minutes later, the Sheriff’s Office received an additional call from Hardtails that Tadjiki was back. Tadjiki then left the bar again, this time stealing two pool balls from a table.
Deputies responded back to Hardtails looking for Tadjiki. The first deputy to arrive in the area spotted Tadjiki driving the red Nissan pickup southbound on Larch St in front of Hardtails without any lights on. The deputy turned on his overhead lights attempting to get Tadjiki to pull over and stop. Tadjiki accelerated away from the deputy running the stop sign at Larch St and Cascade almost causing a collision with a vehicle travelling eastbound of Cascade.
Tadjiki led deputies on a pursuit eastbound out of the City of Sisters on Hwy 20W that reached speeds of 90 to 100 mph. The pursuit covered approximately 6 miles and ended when Tadjiki stopped his vehicle in the middle of Hwy 20 near Cascade Estates Dr. Tadjiki exited his pickup with his hands up and gave himself up to deputies. Deputies took Tadjiki into custody at that time. When Tadjiki exited his vehicle, he did not put the transmission in park and the vehicle rolled forward onto the north shoulder where the vehicle struck a barbed wire fence.
Tadjiki was arrested and lodged in the Deschutes County Adult Jail on the following charges. Attempt to Elude, Felony, Reckless Driving, Theft 3, Assault on a Public Safety Officer, DUII, and Assault 4.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in this incident by the Black Butte Police Department, the Oregon State Police and the Bend Police Department.
