TERREBONNE, OR -- A Redmond man was kicked out of Smith Rock State Park, Saturday, after several park visitors reported strange activity. Deschutes County 911 received a report of a man throwing rocks from a ledge onto the trail, just before 1:30 p.m. There was also a secondhand report that the man had threatened a hiker, and another report he was waving around a .45 caliber handgun.

 

Over a dozen law enforcement personnel from a number of local agencies responded, including five on duty with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office SWAT team. As deputies arrived, they asked hikers to leave the area. They detained 54-year-old Daren Jaques as he walked down the Misery Ridge Trail at about 2:30 p.m. They determined he didn't have a gun and he was trespassed from state park property.

 

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with firsthand knowledge of the incident is asked to call non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911.
