Woman rescued after crashing powered wheelchair: Forest Grove police log

Posted July 12, 2018 at 10:25 AM


By Samantha Swindler

The Oregonian/OregonLive

Not every police agency provides a log of its responses, and few do it with the finesse of the Forest Grove Police Department. Every week, we post the goings on as provided by this community 25 miles west of Portland, not because it's earth-shatteringly important, but because it provides a glimpse into the world of modern small-town policing.

During the week, Forest Grove police officers were engaged in more than 508 activities. Here are some of the highlights:

June 29

* A caller reported that their neighbors were in an argument that seemed to be escalating. Officers found the neighbor engaged in a heated phone conversation. The neighbor was encouraged to use a lower volume.

* Officers contacted a woman face down in the grass alongside a busy road. The woman said she was simply taking a nap in the sunshine. She was asked to move along.

* Police responded to a shopping center where two men were allegedly fighting over a recent road rage incident. Officers were unable to locate one party who reportedly left prior to police arrival.

June 30

* A man called police after a woman removed his laundry from a public washing machine so that she could wash her clothes. Officers said it was a civil matter.

* A caller reported finding a human hand, likely from an infant, in a grassy area in a neighborhood. Officers found the rubber hand of a doll tangled in dried weeds.

* A minivan crashed along Highway 47 and flipped into a field. The driver had likely been speeding along a cross street, failed to stop at the intersection, and crossed the highway. The driver was transported to the hospital and, after a blood test, later arrested on suspicion of DUII and reckless driving.

July 1

* A caller reported several juveniles smoking marijuana by the bathrooms in a park. Officers found a group of adults smoking cigarettes.

* Police responded to a restaurant where a man was reportedly screaming and grabbing customers. The man was deaf and there was a misunderstanding about his order. The man got his food and subsequently left the location.

July 2

* A woman reported a man was "talking smack" to her and started playing with a knife as he walked away from the conversation. Officers learned that no actual threats were made, but agreed to talk to the man if located -- he was not.

* A man called police to report his roommate was receiving and sending an inordinate amount of packages and is possibly the victim of a scam. Officers are investigating.

* Police received a report of a man allegedly throwing things and urinating on cars in a hotel parking lot. Officers found no one in the area matching the description.

July 3

* A caller reported a vehicle driving around a neighborhood revving the engine and smoking tires in the middle of the night. Officers found burn out marks on the streets, but didn't find the vehicle.

* Police located an elderly woman in a powered wheelchair who reportedly crashed headlong into a ditch. With the help of Forest Grove Fire, the woman was rescued from the ditch and transported to the hospital

* A woman reported a man had stolen a starter to her vehicle. As officers looked into the incident, they determined the starter was likely not stolen but that the woman had an issue with the man she was accusing. Police advised the pair it was a civil matter.

July 4

* A woman stumbled into a residential area, her face, arms, and legs covered in lacerations. She was rather intoxicated and had become lost walking home from a friend's house when she took a detour through several blackberry brambles. She declined medical assistance and was eventually transported to a sober friend's location.

* North Plains Police and Washington County deputies tipped off Forest Grove officers that a potentially drunk driver was headed into town from Gales Creek. Officers located and stopped the vehicle. The driver was arrested.

* A caller reported several men acting strangely around a car stuck in a ditch, chasing off other cars with a baseball bat. Officers contacted three very intoxicated men who were initially aggressive toward officers, but found no evidence of any criminal behavior. One man, however, was taken into custody for violating a no-alcohol stipulation on his probation.

July 5

* Officers responded to a two-vehicle crash in the parking lot of an auto-detailing business.

* Police contacted a man who was reportedly driving recklessly in a powered wheelchair. He was advised to drive safely.

* A property owner reported that a renter had been evicted but had failed to move out and was leaving cigarettes around the yard. Officers advised the caller on options for landlord-tenant disputes.
