BEND, OR -- A 20-year-old Bend man is accused of crashing into a patrol car while trying to flee a traffic stop, Wednesday night. Bend Police say Jerrod Floyd was seen driving a stolen car near 15th and Tempest Drive, at about 6:45 p.m. When the officer attempted to pull the car over, it crashed into the officer's patrol car. The driver then fled south.

 

It was later found abandoned near SE 15th and Tekampe. Despite sightings from neighbors and a multi-agency search, Floyd was not immediately located by law enforcement. 


At about 9:25 p.m., officers found him hiding in a backyard on Sweet Pea, near Knott Road, where he was arrested. Floyd is charged with Hit and Run, Felony Elude and Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle.
