BEND, OR -- A 40-year-old Bend man was arrested early Friday morning after deputies say he led them on a pursuit near China Hat Road. Deschutes County Deputies first tried to pull over the 2004 Chevrolet Blazer for a traffic violation, just after 3 a.m. They say instead of stopping, it accelerated and led the deputy on a short pursuit before he lost sight of the vehicle.
DCSO deputies and Bend Police officers conducted a search of the area later locating the Blazer involved in the pursuit. Law enforcement followed shoe impressions from the vehicle to a nearby camp where they contacted people inside a motorhome. Based on statements and evidence located at the camp, deputies determined Kori Kinsley was the driver of the Blazer during the pursuit.
Kinsley was arrested without incident and taken to jail. He faces Attempt to Elude and probation violation charges
