BEND, OR -- Deschutes County D-A John Hummel has cleared a deputy who fired at a man during a La Pine area traffic stop on Christmas night. 29 year old James Lamkin was suspected of drunk driving and a deputy tried to pull him over but Lamkin wouldn’t stop. When Lamkin did stop he would not cooperate and was armed with a gun which he fired at Deputy Evan Kennedy. Hummel says a second deputy, Anthony Ramos arrived, and returned fire towards Lamkin’s vehicle. Neither deputy was hurt and Lamkin also was not hit by any of the six bullets that hit his truck. Lamkin is jailed and awaiting trial.
