A Bend Police Officer is led on a foot pursuit after he attempted a traffic stop in southeast Bend late Monday night. Just before midnight, when an officer tried to stop transient Jason Daryl Walter, 35, near Ferguson Road and Ridgewater Loop, Walter sped up, ending on a dead end street. Then Walter and his passenger, Joshua Dewayne Watson, 30, of Bend left the car on foot. Sgt. Todd Fletcher tells our news partner, News Channel 21, Watson was captured a short time later. The driver, Walter escaped quick capture, and police called in back up with the Deschutes County Sheriff and OSP. In addition, Bend Police K-9 "Haras" was deployed to assist, and he was able to locate Walter hiding in the yard of a nearby home.  Police discovered Walter is also the suspect in a March 28th criminal mischief case in Redmond. Both men were taken to the Deschutes County Jail on numerous charges.
