BIGGS JCT, OR -- The Madras fugitive who escaped capture during a high-speed chase through two counties, last week, was arrested over the weekend in the Gorge. An Oregon State Police Sergeant spotted Malcolm Harpole on I-84, east of Biggs Junction, Sunday morning.
OSP says Harpole sped up when they tried to pull him over. Shortly after running over police spike strips, the pickup he was driving came to a stop in the middle of the highway.
Harpole is charged with driving while suspended, attempting to elude and a probation violation, among others. His passenger, 28-year-old William Worthington of Terrebonne, was arrested for meth possession.
