The driver did not stop, and attempted to elude the police.

Several deputies from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and troopers with the Oregon State Police responded to assist.

After utilizing spike strips to flatten the suspect vehicle's tires in combination with a pursuit intervention technique (or PIT maneuver), deputies were able to safely bring the vehicle to a stop in the area of Hwy. 212 and SE 106th Ave. in Clackamas.

The driver continued his attempt to escape by running away on foot, but was unable to outrun CCSO K9 Vito, who quickly apprehended him.

The driver -- identified as 35 year old Donald Livingston of Portland, Oregon -- was arrested, and will be lodged at the Clackamas County Jail for the charges of Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, Reckless Driving, and Reckless Endangering, among other charges. Bail is set at $75,000. His full booking info is here.

A female passenger in the vehicle was interviewed and released at the scene.
