CROOKED RIVER RANCH, OR -- A Washington man is accused of threatening to kill his stepdad, in Crooked River Ranch, over the weekend. He was caught after he put the wrong fuel into his car and it stalled out during his escape. 


The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old Jeremy Thomas, of Shoreline, WA, fired a gun at a property on Dove Road, early Saturday morning. He then drove off with his girlfriend and three-year-old child. No one was hit by the gunfire.


Investigators say the car was low on fuel, so Thomas stole a gas can from a barn on Lower Bridge, filled it with diesel from a fuel tank on the property and put that into his car, which runs on unleaded gas. Thomas was arrested after his girlfriend called for a tow, claiming the car battery had died. The vehicle actually became disabled due to the diesel. 


Thomas faces numerous charges, including Burglary, Theft and being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm. There were no injuries reported and the Sheriff's Office says drugs may be have been a factor.
