A Prineville man was arrested Wednesday evening after committing a traffic violation and leading police on a car chase, Prineville police said.
Lawrence Mark Stroud, 31, was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person, eluding in a vehicle, attempted assault, parole violation and for possessing methamphetamine.
At around 8:30 p.m., police reported officers tried to stop a white Chevrolet pickup driven by Stroud for a traffic violation in the area of Northeast Hudspeth Lane in Prineville. Stroud did not stop the car when signalled to, and attempted to flee, police said. Officers pursued his car through the Ochoco Heights area, and eventually were able to stop him by using spike strips to deflate his vehicle tires.
