[ARCHIVED] Calls about an erratic driver on Beltline result in his arrest

At 12:23 p.m., on June 25, Central Lane 911 began receiving calls about a 2002 white Honda Odyssey that was driving an estimated 30 miles per hour in the fast lane of westbound Beltline near Prairie Road. The driver, later identified as Curtis David Holden, age 56, from Clatskanie, Oregon, was swerving across both lanes of traffic. Callers reported he turned onto Roosevelt going eastbound, running a red light in the process.

Officers located the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop, but Holden refused to yield and drove through another red light at Seneca into oncoming traffic. Due to the danger to the public, officers forcibly stopped the vehicle at Seneca and Roosevelt. At first the man appeared to be cooperative but then officers found he had locked himself in the vehicle. Holden refused to obey commands or exit and instead put the vehicle into reverse and hit the police car behind him. Officers broke the driver’s side window and took Holden into custody. He was arrested for Reckless Driving and Eluding.
