GLENDALE, Ore. — A Glendale man led deputies on a chase into the hills — and up a tree — until a K9 tracked him down on Thursday, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Around 8 a.m. on Thursday, a deputy tried to stop the driver of a blue 2006 Chevy Cobalt on I-5 near Canyonville. The driver, later identified as 39-year-old Jason Edmund Dangerfield, reportedly refused to stop and led deputies on a pursuit into the mountains northeast of Glendale.

The Sheriff's Office said that Dangerfield eventually abandoned his car and ran down an embankment into "very steep terrain."

Deputies brought in K9 Zoro, who began helping with the search. They eventually found Dangerfield about 10 feet up a tree, the Sheriff's Office said.

Dangerfield has been lodged in the Douglas County Jail on charges for Attempt to Elude Police, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering, Interfering with a Police Officer, Obstructing, Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, and other outstanding warrants.

DCSO said that K9 Zoro is a 2-year-old German Shepherd who has been with the agency since September of 2019, funded by an anonymous donor.
