Lebanon man arrested in Scappoose

A Lebanon man was arrested Sunday, June 10, after police approached a car in which he was riding in Scappoose.

According to Oregon State Police, Columbia County Sheriff’s Department personnel responded to an assault call Sunday and put out an alert for a black Toyota Camry.

At approximately 9 a.m. OSP troopers located a vehicle that matched the ATL at the Road Runner gas station in Scappoose.

During the investigation, the rear passenger, Christopher Corwin, 30, from Lebanon became combative and assaulted two troopers, according an OSP report.  Corwin has a state-wide felony warrant out of Linn County along with additional warrants.  Additional charges will include resisting arrest and assault on a public safety officer.

Surrounding agencies responded to assist, as well as an off-duty Forest Grove officer who saw the altercation. Corwin was taken into custody and had to be medically sedated because of believed drug use before being transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Both troopers received minor injuries and were transported to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, where they were treated and released.

The person of interest in the assault, Orin Graves,43, from Warren was in the vehicle. He was later arrested on outstanding warrants out of Clackamas County. Columbia County is still investigating the original disturbance.
