LA PINE, OR -- Reports of an armed intoxicated man “tearing up” a La Pine business led to the evacuation of a nearby business and a brief stand-off with Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies, Friday evening. The suspect’s mother was able to safely leave the Highway 97 location after reporting 34-year-old Joseph Cleveland was causing problems inside. 

 

Assisted by Sunriver PD and Oregon State Police, deputies surrounded the business and began calling inside to convince Cleveland to come out. About 90-minutes after the initial call, he walked out on his own and was arrested. They later found an A/R-type firearm at the scene. 
 
Cleveland is charged with Criminal Mischief and Unlawful Possession of a Short Barreled Rifle.
