LA PINE, OR -- A Portland man is expected to appear in Deschutes County court Monday, to answer to numerous charges stemming from a pursuit in La Pine.  

On Friday, deputies tried to stop 28-year-old Phillip Anderson for speeding at over 100 miles an hour on Day Road. They called off the pursuit over safety concerns, but found the SUV crashed in a residential yard, a short time later. Anderson initially refused to get out of the vehicle. After a 10-minute negotiation, he was taken into custody without incident. 

They determined Anderson ingested drugs during the chase and stand-off, and he was taken to St. Charles Bend before being booked into the jail. The vehicle he was driving was reported stolen from Gresham in July. 


Anderson is charged with Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Heroin Possession, Meth Possession, Attempt to Elude, Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering, Driving While Suspended, Felon in Possession of a Restricted Weapon, Tampering with Evidence, Criminal Mischief, three outstanding warrants from Multnomah County and a parole violation.
