Michael Hanson, 34, of Redmond is in custody today after a police pursuit north of Redmond.


Thursday morning, Redmond Police attempted to stop Hanson after he was identified as being wanted on felony warrants; specifically parole violation for kidnapping.  He claimed to be armed and made threats against police and his parole officer.


Lt. Nathan Garibay explains that Hanson fled in his car, driving at a high rate of speed and endangering the public.  “A Deschutes County Deputy attempted to stop him, and again, he refused to stop. We were able to contain him within an undeveloped area, northeast of the Tetherow Crossing Subdivision. Eventually he was located and taken into custody, but not after he collided with an OSP trooper."


Hanson is lodged in the Deschutes County Jail, and Garibay says Hanson's activities are still under investigation.
