PORTLAND, OR (KOIN) — A man was arrested in Oregon Wednesday after police said he drove his truck off a pier into the Columbia River.
Astoria police said officers went to North Tongue Point to investigate reports of a man possibly trespassing on boats. They quickly located Timofey Erofeeff, 27, who they learned was on parole for various offences.
When officers approached Erofeeff’s Ford F150 to take him into custody, he fled and then drove down the pier and into the water. Police said officers briefly followed him but not onto the pier.
