REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man allegedly led police on a high speed chase between Bend and Redmond, late Sunday night.  An officer attempted to pull over a suspected drunk driver on Highway 97 near Odem Medo in Redmond, but the driver took off southbound at speeds topping 100 miles per hour.
 
Deschutes County deputies and Bend police set up spike strips on the north end of Bend, but the driver made a u-turn before reaching the strips.  The Dodge Challenger then hit a second set of spike strips at Deschutes Market Road, then a third set several miles away at Young Avenue, just south of Redmond.  39-year old Lucas Paranto was then taken into custody without incident.  He faces a long list of charges, including DUII, reckless driving, and attempting to elude law enforcement.
