The superintendent of Deer Ridge Correctional Institution (DRCI) was arrested in Bend early Thursday morning after he was found driving under the influence.
A Bend Police officer pulled over 46-year-old Randy Ray Gilbertson’s truck during a routine traffic stop at around 2 a.m.
The officer was conducting a DUII investigation when Gilbertson ran from the officer and then resisted arrest.
The Payette, Idaho man was booked at Deschutes County Jail on the following charges:
- Driving While Under the Influence of Intoxicants-Alcohol
- Resisting Arrest
The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) said Gilbertson is currently duty stationed at home with pay pending a police investigation.
The case will be sent to DOC’s Human Resources team once that investigation is complete.
Gilbertson began his role at DRCI on August 1 of this year, and Richard Ackley is the Acting Superintendent at this time.
He has worked with the Department of Corrections since 1999, and started as a Correctional Officer at Snake River Correctional Institution (SRCI).
His current salary is $11,168 per month.
