REDMOND, OR -- An early morning police chase just outside Redmond resulted in the arrest of an eastern Oregon man. A Deschutes County deputy tried to stop an F-350 pickup for a traffic violation near Highland and Rimrock Way, just before 2 a.m. Thursday. The driver sped off, going up to 80 miles an hour. 

 

At one point, deputies say the suspect tried to hit a Oregon State Police trooper’s vehicle head on, and succeeded in ramming a deputy’s parked car while trying to escape. 
 
The pickup was later found abandoned near NE 33rd and Walnut. After a search by multiple agencies and a K-9 deputy, officers arrested 24-year-old Garrett Victor Leeper of Ontario. He's charged with assault, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempting to elude and other crimes.
