Portland Police Officer Assaulted While Arresting Flasher

Monday, October 06, 2014

 

Joey D Vandervort

On Monday morning a Portland police officer was assaulted by 19-year-old Joey D Vandervort who was exposing himself in public while looking at a female, according to Portland Police. 

Vandervort attempted to punch the officer in the face but missed and hit the officer's lapel microphone, damaging it. The officer suffered a minor injury to his hand during the arrest, said sergeant Pete Simpson. 

Vandervort attempted to flee, but had not secured his pants and tripped when they became tangled around his ankles. He then flipped onto his back and assumed a "ground fighting stance" and the officer requested cover, police said.

Vandervort made another failed attempt to flee, but officers were able to take custody. Police said Vandervort vigorously resisted arrest. 

The suspect claimed to be under the influence of stimulant and was transported to an area hospital to be treated. He was then taken to the Multnomah County Jail and booked on charges including, assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, interfering with a police officer, public indecency and resisting arrest, according to police.
