SALEM, OR -- A Crook County Deputy District Attorney has been arrested after allegedly leading police on a chase.
A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy tried to pull over a car for going 80 miles per hour on Highway 22 near Lyons, Sunday night. The driver refused to pull over, speeding down a gravel road. Due to the dust, the deputy backed off and eventually found the car abandoned near Stayton.
Monday morning, 29-year-old Matthew Reiner was arrested when he returned to the area looking for the car. The Bend man was described as wet, scraped up and in possession of the car’s keys. Reiner is the registered owner and works for the Crook County D.A.'s office.
Investigators say it’s unclear why he didn’t stop for police.
