HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a man who ran from deputies during a traffic stop was rescued after he ran through a creek and began to experience symptoms of hypothermia in a suburb west of Portland.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies stopped a vehicle by a golf course near Hillsboro Tuesday morning and that the passenger ran.

The sheriff’s office says Julian Villalobos-Chavez ran onto the golf course and through a chest-deep creek. Deputies who followed saw him hiding in thick brush on the other side.

Authorities say Villalobos-Chavez quickly began to have hypothermia symptoms, was rescued and treated at a hospital.

The sheriff’s office says deputies learned after the rescue that Villalobos-Chavez had multiple felony warrants out for his arrest. He was booked into jail.
