PORTLAND — A 29-year-old parolee involved in a police chase through the Beaverton area is facing multiple charges, including assault, reckless driving, felony hit-and-run, criminal mischief and attempting to elude a police officer.

The Oregonian says Leonel Zamora Jr. also was driving a stolen pickup truck and had a suspended license.

According to authorities, the chase began Saturday afternoon after a Washington County sheriff’s deputy tried to stop Zamora in response to a domestic dispute.

A deputy caught Zamora as he ran from the second crash. He was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, then booked into Washington County jail.

Authorities say Zamora was out on parole for burglary.
