Sheriff: Car from chase found in pond, wet man fights with deputy

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A vehicle involved in a chase was found in a pond Sunday morning, and authorities say after fighting and injuring a deputy, one of the men that may have been involved is behind bars.

The Douglas County Sheriff's office says deputies responded to the 4000 block of Lookingglass Road for a report that a car that had led Roseburg police on a chase Saturday night was located in a pond.

As a deputy was taking pictures of the scene just before 10:30 am on Sunday, a citizen told him he saw a vehicle pick up two people who had just come out of the brush near there.

Deputies say one of the men, later identified as Adam Lee Fisher, 32, of Roseburg, was soaking wet and acting suspicious.

Authorities say Fisher then tried to run and fought with the deputy, who suffered from cuts to his hands.

Officials say Fisher ran into a wooded area wearing jeans and one shoe.

Deputies say fisher circled back and went to a house on Lookingglass Road and asked to use the phone.

The homeowner called 911 instead, and authorities were able to take Fisher into custody.

Deputies lodged Fisher in the Douglas County Jail and charged him with resisting arrest, second degree escape and assaulting a public safety officer, among other charges.
