Redmond Foot Chase Leads to Man Being Tased, Arrested

A Redmond man was tased and arrested Monday morning after running from Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputies.

According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were in the area of the 2000 block of NW 35th Street in Redmond about 10 a.m. investigating a possible code/ordinance violation.

During the investigation deputies learned of a male residing at the house that had a statewide felony warrant for a parole violation. The male, identified as 36-year-old David Edward Stryffeler,  attempted to hide from deputies in an adjacent lot. Deputies located Stryffeler who immediately began to run the scene with deputies giving chase, said Sgt. James McLaughlin.

The chase continued for about 100 yards before Stryffeler climbed a fence to a neighboring residence and was surrounded by deputies.

At that point, Stryffeler stopped and began to approach deputies in a combative manner, McLaughlin said. After several unheeded warnings, deputies tased Stryffeler.

Stryffeler was arrested and treated at the scene by Redmond Fire/Paramedics. An area canvas was conducted and deputies located a felony amount of methamphetamine along with other drug paraphernalia.

Stryffeler was taken to St. Charles Medical Center, Redmond, with non-life-threatening injuries sustained as a result of his attempt to resist arrest. He was later released from the hospital and taken to the Deschutes County Jail on several charges including resisting arrest, felony unlawful possession of meth and felon in possession of a weapon.
