Redmond man arrested after 100 mph chase


A Redmond man was arrested Saturday morning after leading Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies on a 100 mph chase.

Deputies said they attempted to pull over 47-year-old Glen James Carroll, when he and the vehicle took off westbound on NW Quince Avenue.

The vehicle made its way back to Highway 97 from NW Pershall Way and started to drive southbound through Redmond on Highway 97.

Redmond Police officers were able to deploy spike strips in the area of Highway 97 and Evergreen Avenue.

Carroll drove over the spike strips with the rear passenger side tire.

After continuing southbound on Highway 97 and driving at high speeds, the car slowed down and tire eventually came off.

Carroll then left the highway on the east side of Highway 97 across from Tomahawk Avenue, taking a BLM road.

Sgt. Jason Janes with DCSO said Carroll eventually stopped and got out of the car and ran.

The deputy was able to take him into custody after a short foot pursuit.

When Carroll was arrested, Janes said he had about one ounce of suspected methamphetamine.

He was charged with attempt to elude felony, attempt to elude misdemeanor, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, reckless driving, and driving while suspended misdemeanor.

Carroll was cited and released at the scene.

The Sheriffs Office would like to thank the Redmond Police Department for their assistance.
