SUNRIVER, OR -- A Sunriver-area man faces multiple charges following a weekend domestic dispute. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office says James Crawford’s girlfriend showed up at his place to get her dog; she was worried about Crawford's safety and tried to take his guns away. A struggle ensued and she left with a friend.
The 32-year-old man allegedly then drove his motorhome to the friend’s house, Saturday night, and fired a shotgun at the car in which the woman and her friend were sitting. No one was hurt, although the car was damaged, and Crawford went home.
Early Sunday morning, deputies spotted Crawford driving into the parking lot of a mini-mart in Sunriver. SWAT responded and contacted him by phone, ordering Crawford out of the motorhome; he was arrested without incident.
Authorities say he has a restraining order against him the prohibits him from having any firearms. He faces two counts each of Attempted Assault, Menacing, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Pointing a Firearm at Another, as well as Misdemeanor Driving While Suspended and Violating a Restraining Order.
