The man was arrested for Felony Attempt to Elude in a Vehicle and Misdemeanor Attempt to Elude on Foot.
(EUGENE, Ore.) - Deputies in Lane County say a Eugene man was arrested Monday morning, after attempting to elude police officers from several agencies in the Eugene area.
The incident reportedly ended after the man abandoned his car and fled into his sister's residence, where a trooper and deputy convinced him to surrender without further incident. Monday at approximately 7:45 a.m. Oregon State Police OSP Recruit Trooper Michael Pelkey reported attempting to stop a 1994 Saturn four-door for a traffic violation on Franklin Boulevard.
The driver, later identified as 44-year old Terry Kevin Larsen of Eugene, reportedly failed to stop and attempted to elude westbound, failing to stop for multiple traffic lights and nearly colliding with other vehicles.
He eventually stopped and abandoned the car on Lincoln Alley behind 1351 Lawrence Street where he fled on foot into the Lawrence Street residence, according to Pelkey. OSP's Recruit Trooper Pelkey and Lane County Deputy Gordon Gill entered the residence and determined Larsen was hiding in an attic bedroom. The officers convinced Larsen to surrender and he was taken into custody at 7:59 a.m. Larsen was lodged at the Lane County Jail for Felony Attempt to Elude in a Vehicle and Misdemeanor Attempt to Elude on Foot. In addition to the local charges, he was also lodged on two outstanding warrants and cited for Driving While Suspended.
