BEND, OR -- A Bend man faces numerous charges after allegedly swerving into oncoming traffic on Bear Creek Road and nearly hitting a deputy, then leading law enforcement on a nine-minute pursuit through northeast Bend. The Sheriff's Office says the deputy spotted the erratic driving just after 1 a.m. Sunday, and had to drive off the road to avoid a collision.


After the car failed to pull over for the deputy, Bend Police deployed spike strips on Parrell Road, forcing the suspect vehicle to stop. They say 48-year-old Kelly Joe Meyer had two passengers in the car who reported he had been "playing chicken" with other vehicles. 

 

Investigators found a stolen handgun in his car, as well as body armor, tactical gear, a security badge and an older Bend PD shoulder patch. He's charged with being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Controlled Substance, three counts of Reckless Endangering and Felony Attempt to Elude.
