Monday, January 11, 2016

Washington County Sheriff’s Deputies received help from a canine companion in their efforts to arrest a driver for DUII,

Police were called to the scene of a one-car crash on SW Tonquin Road near Sherwood late on Saturday night. The driver, 54-year-old Daniel Horton of Sherwood ran his 2009 Acura into a tree.

A concerned passer-by checked on Horton, who asked the witness not to report the crash to police, and fled the scene. The good samaritan called police and reported that the driver was intoxicated.

When deputies arrived they found the car in the tree. The witness told police which way Horton ran. With the assistance of a Tigard officer and kiss k9, deputies were able to successfully track and arrest Horton.

Deputies determined Hoton was driving impaired and charged him with DUII. He was lodged in the Washington County Jail.
