BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Deschutes County District Attorney says a Springfield man who pulled a handgun on a driver involved in an alleged-hit-and-run in Redmond will not face criminal charges.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/A9lhdl ) that District Attorney John Hummel said Thursday that it was not legally justifiable for Joshua Dornon to point the weapon at another person, but that the district attorney will not press charges in light of Dornon’s “good Samaritan” deeds, such as pulling injured passengers out of the wrecked vehicle.

Officials the driver of a Ford F-250 struck and parked car, causing his truck to flip and land on its top. Dornon pulled a passenger and driver out of the truck before the driver took off on foot. Dornon chased after, pointing his gun at the driver and stopping his escape.
