BEND, OR -- A suspected drunk driver led Bend Police on a circular chase, late Sunday night. An officer first tried to pull over an SUV just before midnight, because it was speeding on Franklin, near NE Second Street. Police observed the vehicle traveling at 40-45 mph in a posted 25 mph zone. The vehicle turned right onto Third, then made another quick right onto Emerson. 

 

The driver, later identified as 31-year-old Michael Anderson of Bend, turned off his headlights while continuing to drive. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, they say Anderson sped through the Walgreens parking lot, up Second Street and back to Franklin. He allegedly ran a red light at Third Street before finally stopping near Fourth Street.
 
He was taken into custody without incident. Investigators say his blood alcohol content was .15%, well above the legal limit of .08%.
