Wash. man accused of reckless driving in Oregon

WILSONVILLE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say they've arrested a Tacoma, Wash., man accused of trying to run another motorist off Interstate 5 south of Portland.

Trooper Scott Kinch says police were watching for a 2012 Chevrolet with Washington plates on Tuesday afternoon after another motorist reported the vehicle passing on the shoulder and trying to run another vehicle off the highway.

A State Police sergeant spotted the car, saw it try to force a vehicle off the road and then stopped it.

Police say 36-year-old Danial James Carpenter was arrested for investigation of DUI, reckless driving, reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

A trooper seized more than four grams of meth.
