High-speed chase leads to arrest

For more than 15 minutes, Depoe Bay resident Joshua J. Dale allegedly led police on a high-speed chase east of Baker City on Interstate 84 after state troopers attempted to stop him for traveling 86 mph in a 65-mph zone.

Troopers said they chased Dale for about 29 miles at speeds between 90 and 115 mph before Dale slowed to avoid spike strips police had placed on the highway. Oregon State Police Senior Trooper Tracy Howard "tactically intervened," according to the OSP, bumping Dale's 1995 Nissan Altima to a stop.

Dale was checked for injuries and transported to Holy Rosary Hospital in Ontario before being held in the Baker County Jail on charges of felony attempt to elude, reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person and a misdemeanor for driving with a suspended license.

Dale also was cited for exceeding the speed limit in excess of 100 mph. There were no injuries.
