BEND, OR -- A Bend man faces numerous charges after a small fire and evidence of drug use was discovered off Benham Falls Road, in the Deschutes National Forest. That fire, near the Lava Lands Visitors Center was about a quarter-acre. A U.S. Forest Service officer contacted a suspect, Monday afternoon, who initially gave a fake name before fleeing the scene. 

 
About 90 minutes later, 911 took a report of a domestic disturbance inside a car, near Third and Franklin. The car's description matched the suspect vehicle in the reckless burning case. Bend Police and OSP pulled over the car and arrested 43-year-old Benjamin Osborn. He and his passenger, a 28-year-old California woman, were evaluated at the hospital for possible drug use.
 
Osborn is accused of DUII, Heroin possession, failing to register as a sex offender, as well as an outstanding warrant from California and other charges.
