BEND, OR -- A Bend City Council candidate is in hot water after trying to flee police on a bicycle. Ronald Boozell was arrested Friday on a warrant for contempt of court. He's running for Position Six on Council.
Police say an officer was driving past City Hall when he recognized Boozell riding his bike and told the mand there was a warrant for his arrest. Boozell allegedly refused to stop his bike, prompting the officer to pursue him on foot and arrest him.
Boozell had been ordered to serve a 90-day sentence for failure to pay child support. Now he's facing a charge of interfering with a cop and will likely be spending election day in jail.
