Oregon State Police (OSP) is seeking witnesses related to a reckless driving arrest late Wednesday morning on Highway 26 east of Government Camp.
On March 27, 2013 at 11:09 a.m., OSP Northern Command Center dispatch received reports of a white four-door passenger car with Oregon license plates westbound on Highway 26 near milepost 86 being operated recklessly. The reported driving included near collisions, failing to maintain a lane of travel, and traveling on the wrong side of highway. Some people reported being run off the road.
At 11:33 a.m., Senior Trooper Mike Holloran stopped the white 2012 Honda Civic four-door near milepost 61 about seven miles west of Government Camp. Several witnesses also stopped at the scene. Subsequent contact led to the arrest of DOUGLAS CHARLES WATSON JR, age 27, from Redmond, for Reckless Driving. He was lodged at Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facility (NORCOR).
Holloran is asking for contact from any witnesses who didn’t stop at the traffic stop scene to call for a statement at (541) 980-1019.
