Oregon State Police caught the fugitive of Monday night's high speed chase east of Bend. Kenneth Murphy, 27, was arrested Tuesday near the Deschutes County Jail, where he was waiting for his girlfriend to be released. Murphy was wanted out of Pennsylvania for a parole violation and was considered potentially violent and a flight risk. On Monday night, an OSP Trooper stopped Murphy's vehicle for speeding. When the trooper approached the car, he took off going at speeds up to 130 miles per hour. Eventually Murphy took off on foot, but his girlfriend was arrested.
