Police: Klamath Falls man arrested after pursuit through Douglas County, wrong way on I-5
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Klamath Falls man was arrested Monday following a pursuit through Douglas County, the sheriff's office said.
Just after noon on Monday, November 6, a Douglas County Sheriff's deputy attempted to stop a 2004 black Infinity on Rolling Hills Road near Lone Oak in Roseburg.
Instead of stopping, the driver fled at a high rate of speed, police said, at one point stopping to let a female passenger out.
The driver attempted to elude deputies through Green, down Highway 99S, and into the Clarks Branch Road area before driving south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5, the report said.
Douglas County 911 dispatchers received multiple reports of the vehicle traveling the wrong way on the freeway.
Eventually, the driver, 34-year-old Jack James Hasbrouck of Klamath Falls, exited the northbound lanes and began traveling south in the southbound lanes.
A deputy spotted the car turning into a driveway off Boomer Hill Road where Hasbrouck exited and ran from the car, but deputies eventually captured him, according to the report.
During a search of the vehicle, deputies located approximately three pounds of marijuana.
Hasbrouck was arrested for Attempting to Elude Police (Vehicle), Attempting to Elude Police (Foot), Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering, Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle and Parole Violation.
Additional charges related to the marijuana are expected, police said.
Hasbrouck is currently on probation in Klamath County for Robbery and Elude, the sheriff's office said.
