PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say troopers used nonlethal force to subdue a suspected drunken driver who fled from authorities in Central Oregon.

Troopers say they received reports Saturday night of a vehicle that couldn’t stay in its lane. They attempted to stop the black pickup in Redmond but the driver fled.

The vehicle came to a stop in Prineville and was subdued by authorities after a brief standoff. The driver, a 33-year-old Redmond man, was taken to a hospital and treated for his injuries before being lodged at the Crook County Jail.

He faces charges including attempt to elude police and drunken driving.
