Oregon State Police arrested a Grants Pass man Sunday afternoon following multiple attempts to elude troopers in Douglas County. Police first attempted to stop the motorcycle after it was clocked at 95 mph on Interstate 5. The driver failed to yield and sped up to over 100 mph. After additional attempts to stop it, the driver lost control about 17 miles northwest of Roseburg and fled the scene on foot. Troopers eventually found and arrested 23-year-old Jeffrey Engebretson, who admitted to reaching speeds of 183 mph during the initial chase.
