Details are sketchy at this point but a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy who tried to pull over a car in the Otis area early this morning saw it take off and head west on Highway 18 at high speed. The deputy activated his overhead lights and chased the vehicle to 101 – then south into Lincoln City.
The chase ended at the Chinook Winds Casino Resort – the car leaving the pavement heading out across the grass toward the motel section of the resort. The vehicle was stopped by a ditch. Driver Raven Hatfield, 20, jumped out and ran toward one of the motel buildings.
Again, sketchy details – but reports say that Hatfield was captured on the roof of one of the motel buildings. A passenger in his car, 25 year old Haley Lynch was also taken into custody.
At the Lincoln County Jail Hatfield was booked for heroin and meth possession, along with reckless and dangerous driving and trying to elude law enforcement. He’s being held without bail at the jail. Charges against Lynch have not yet been released but she is well known to law enforcement as well and has been lodged in the county jail.
