On April 21, 2016 at approximately 4:40am Deputies with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office attempted to stop a 1997 Honda Accord that had switched plates belonging to a 1992 Toyota Camry on SE McLoughlin Blvd. near SE Concord Rd. in unincorporated Clackamas County. Following an approximate 12 minute chase where speed reached approximately 75 miles per hour, the vehicle stopped on its own accord. The operator, identified as James R. Williams, a 35 year old male, from Oregon City was taken into custody. Shortly after detaining Mr. Williams, he began sweating profusely and then began to convulse. Medics responded code 3 and transported Mr. Williams to St. Vincent Hospital where he is last known to be in ICU. It is believed Mr. Williams may have ingested drugs before his arrest.
Charges include Possession of a Controlled Substance - Methamphetamine, Reckless Driving, Attempt to Elude a Police Officer, and a Felony warrant for a Parole Violation.
