Deer Ridge Correctional Institution superintendent arrested in Bend

  |  

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.
