One Arrested for Bend Carjacking

BEND, OR -- A Silverton man was arrested Saturday for allegedly stealing a car from a customer at a Bend Dutch Bros coffee drive-thru.


Bend Police say 40-year-old Aaron Hodges had been yelling at a customer when he jumped into the passenger seat of a pickup at about 8:30 p.m. and demanded a ride. When the 18-year-old driver refused, Hodges reportedly used his hand to push the gas pedal. 


The driver tried to press the brakes, but eventually jumped out of the vehicle, concerned for his own safety. Hodges then crashed into a parked car near Third and Lafayette.
He was arrested on a number of charges, including Robbery and Menacing. Hodges was released Sunday morning on his own recognizance. According to the Deschutes County Jail he was re-arrested on new charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, Sunday afternoon.
