Pursuit ends in crash, DUII charge

An attempted traffic stop in Newport in the early morning hours on Saturday, Dec. 1, turned into a high-speed chase on Highway 20 and ended in a crash, with multiple agencies responding to assist in the pursuit and apprehension.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Larson attempted to stop a white Cadillac in Newport at around 2:15 a.m. Newport police officers had contact earlier in the night with a person associated with that same vehicle, who was reportedly highly intoxicated but not driving it at the time.
