Medford Man Arrested After White City Area Pursuit

Here is the LINK to our live coverage of the incident as it took place.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies received a call for an ordinance violation at Hoover Ponds County Park in White City at 7:49 this evening.

Upon arrival, JCSO deputies witnessed a passenger vehicle leaving the scene towing another vehicle.

The driver had an active warrant for failure to appear. JCSO deputies attempted to stop the car leaving Hoover Ponds and the driver eluded southbound on Crater Lake Highway 62 at slow speeds.

A JCSO deputy deployed a spike strip at the 5700 block of Crater Lake Highway and the secondary vehicle came off the tow hitch and came to rest in a ditch. The suspect then eluded northbound on Crater Lake Highway. A JCSO deputy deployed another spike strip at the 6700 block of Crater Lake Highway and the eluding vehicle was successfully disabled.

The suspect, Richard Wallace Carlyle II, 41, of Medford was taken into custody and lodged in the Jackson County Jail.
