REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man is accused of leading Deschutes County deputies on a high-speed chase through the north end of Redmond, early Wednesday morning.
Just after 12:30 a.m., a deputy tried to pull over a motorcycle for a minor traffic offense on Northwest Way. The rider, later identified as 32-year-old Colton Leigh, allegedly accelerated, reaching speeds of around 100 miles per hour. He headed east on Maple Ave, crossed Highway 97 against a red light and failed to negotiate the curve near NE 11th and Negus Way.
Leigh was taken to St. Charles Redmond for non-life threatening injuries. He's charged with Felony Attempt to Elude, and Reckless Driving. Leigh was cited and released due to treatment for his injuries.
