Bend Man Arrested After Standoff At Budget Inn

BEND, OR -- A Bend man faces numerous charges after reportedly barricading himself inside a room at the Budget Inn on South Highway 97. Bend Police arrived just before 1 p.m. Saturday. The male, identified as 27-year-old Antonio Hernandez, had rented a room at the location but was supposed to be out by Friday. Hernandez allegedly dismantled a bed from inside his room and swung the mental frame at an employee who was trying to get him to leave.

Officers say they knocked on the door multiple times, announced their presence, and asked Hernandez to cooperate. Police found the door to the motel room was barricaded as items were blocking the entry into the room.  The police then breached the window to the motel room and could see the man still holding the metal bedframe in his hands as a weapon. Police requested additional resources including K9’s from both Bend PD and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. 

Hernandez allegedly started throwing parts of the metal bedframe out the window of the motel room.  Police deployed a form of pepper spray into the motel room; he came outside and was arrested just before 2 p.m.

Hernandez demonstrated signs that he was impaired and under the influence of a stimulant narcotic.  He was taken to the Deschutes County Adult Jail on the following charges: Menacing, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Mischief I, Criminal Trespass II, and a Probation Violation Warrant.
