SISTERS, OR -- A Bend driver is accused of shooting at another vehicle during an alleged road rage incident, Sunday evening. A woman called 911, just before 7 p.m., and reported she was eastbound on Highway 20 from Sisters, being followed by a large Suburban. She then said it passed her, with someone firing shots as they went by. After a few miles, the Suburban turned off the highway. 

 

A deputy responded and found the Suburban parked in the middle of Fryrear Road, near Cascade Estates Drive. After additional law enforcement arrived, 31-year-old Joseph Tafte was arrested during a high-risk traffic stop. 

 

He was evaluated at the hospital before being taken to jail. Tafte faces charges of DUII, Reckless Driving, three counts of Reckless Endangerment, Criminal Mischief, Hit and Run with property damage, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, two counts of Menacing, Resisting Arrest and Interfering with a Police Officer. His first court appearance is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
