BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a drunk driver eluded capture Monday night, before he ran up on a curb with a flat tire and was arrested. An officer observed an SUV commit several traffic violations, at about 8:30 p.m., near 9th and Newport. When the officer activated his overhead lights, the car ran over a curb and a portion of a yard. The officer didn't pursue the driver, out of safety concerns.

 

About five minutes later, a witness reported seeing an SUV speeding near NW Idaho and Wall Street. The car hit a curb and had a flat tire. Police believe it was the same car from the earlier call.
 
Just before 9:30 p.m., officers found the vehicle parked up on a curb near NW Sisemore and Delaware; 29-year-old Michael Street was with the car. He's charged with attempt to elude, DUII and Reckless Driving.
