BEND, Ore. (AP) - Court records show a police corporal in central Oregon was cited after crashing his patrol car into a doughnut shop.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/2b2J6er ) that records show Bend Cpl. Robert Emerson was fined $260 for the March incident.

Oregon State Police say Emerson collided with a pickup truck, slid across an intersection, hit a pedestrian and smashed into the Dough Nut. According to Bulletin archives, no shop employees or customers were injured.

Emerson and pedestrian Brian Zacher of Tualatin were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Bend Police Chief Jim Porter says the corporal likely had his emergency lights and siren activated and was responding to a report of someone fleeing in a stolen vehicle. Porter says the department is still deciding whether or not to discipline Emerson.
