Oregon State Police troopers apprehended what they described as a “reckless driver” who initially attempted to evade law enforcement around 5 p.m. Thursday.
State police have yet to release the driver’s identity, but said they were responding to a complaint about how the motorist was driving. The person initially refused to exit the vehicle.
Police closed a section of Interstate 5 and surrounding streets near 7 Mile Lane south of Albany, where they had surrounded a silver sport-utility vehicle. The northbound lanes of I-5 were reopened shortly after 5 p.m.
