MEDFORD, Ore. — One man is behind bars on Tuesday after leading police on a car chase into an East Medford neighborhood, according to the Medford Police Department (MPD).
MPD says that the incident began when an officer attempted to pull over a silver 2000 BMW just after 8 a.m. Tuesday morning. Rather than stopping, the driver sped away, attempting to elude police.
The suspect slammed his car into a fence in the 3400 block of Ford Drive before abandoning the car and running away on foot. MPD says that the suspect was "jumping over fences" to get away.
Officers caught up with the suspect in the 3000-block of Gary Drive, near Abraham Lincoln Elementary School. The suspect, later identified as 30-year-old Zenaido Quinonez, was arrested.
According to MPD, Quinonez had an outstanding parole warrant for his arrest. Quinonez has been lodged in the Jackson County Jail.
