Troopers chase motorcyclist near O’Brien
Oregon State Police troopers chased and captured a motorcyclist near O’Brien on Lone Mountain Road near milepost two around 1:04 p.m. Monday.

Troopers say they tried to stop 39-year-old Jason Lavern Mode on Waldo Road for traffic violations but he sped up and tried to lose pursuing troopers. The chase lasted for five miles before Mode crashed and troopers managed to capture him a short distance away on foot.

Mode was lodged in jail and charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempting to flee on foot and on a vehicle, possession of meth and marijuana and for being a fugitive from another state.
