What began as a hit and run at Third and Reed Market turned into a domestic dispute and grocery store lock down Sunday afternoon.  According to a police report, it was about 2:30 p.m. when Richard Sander, 40, of Bend crashed his Jeep into the car driven by Charles Rowles, 56, also of Bend. Sander fled the scene before police arrived.  Then, about 15 minutes later, police received another call about a man brandishing a gun at another man, then fleeing in the same vehicle. A few minutes later, police locate the Jeep on the parkway and followed it into the Albertson's parking lot on south Third Street, where it parked in front of the store. Police put the store in lock down while they made the high risk traffic stop. Sander attempted to resist arrest, but was eventually handcuffed. H was arrested for DUII,  Resisting Arrest and other charges. During the search of the vehicle, police found a handgun and BB gun.
