Salem police chase suspect into herd of cattle

Submitted By AP Wire Service

SALEM, Ore. (AP), May 13 - Officers chasing a fleeing suspect in Salem found themselves in a face-off with about 50 longhorn cattle.

The Marion County sheriff's office says detectives went to a home Wednesday to investigate drug activity. When they knocked on the front door a man ran out the back door and fled through yards, a filbert orchard and a cattle pasture.

When the officers tracked the suspect to the pasture with a dog, the cattle charged. They stopped when one deputy fired a shot into the ground.

Deputies then were able to arrest a 44-year-old Salem man, Antonio Rogel-Flores, who was wanted on 13 arrest warrants, mostly for thefts and driving violations.
