BEND, OR -- A 27-year-old Bend man was arrested Sunday for Driving Under the Influence and other charges, after a northeast Bend crash that caused a small power outage. Police say Nicholas Fortin was south on Boyd Acres near Lamoine Lane, just before 6 p.m., but was driving too fast and lost control. He struck landscaping rocks then a power pole, snapping it in half.

 

Fortin was found inside the pickup a short distance from the broken power pole. He was taken to jail while Pacific Power crews restored power to the neighborhood.
