REDMOND, OR -- The Deschutes County District Attorney announced he will not file charges against a man who rescued two people from a crash then held the driver at gunpoint until police arrived. D.A. John Hummel says Joshua Dornon discovered the single-vehicle rollover crash on August 15 in Redmond and extricated both people inside the car.
When the driver took off, Dornon went to his vehicle, grabbed his gun and chased the driver. He found him in a nearby alley and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. That driver now faces criminal charges.
D.A. Hummel admits what Dornan did was against the law, but taking into account that he rescued two people first, Hummel says he's declining to file criminal charges against Dornon.
