At 7:40 this morning a trooper stopped a 2000 Buick LeSabre on southeast 82nd Avenue for a license violation. As the trooper approached the car it sped off forcing the trooper to give chase as the Buick nearly struck a vehicle near southeast SunnyBrooke and then went south on Interstate 205 and exited at Highway 224 where the trooper lost sight of the Buick and terminated the pursuit.
Clackamas Deputies spotted the vehicle and stopped it at 8:04 a.m. and took Griffith into custody without incident. He is now lodged in the Clackamas County Jail facing charges of felony attempt to elude, reckless driving, and the felony warrant from Josephine County for theft in the first degree.
