Man Accused of Trespassing Arrested After Cow Pasture Chase

It was more entertainment than the cows usually see. After a Cottage Grove, Oregon, woman called to say a stranger was driving a red pickup truck through her pastures, a Lane County sheriff's deputy confronted the man and ordered him to the ground.

The man initially followed directions Friday, then got up and ran. The deputy used a stun gun but the man broke contact and ran to his truck, driving off across the farm. After a second deputy joined the chase, the man parked and fled on foot, at one point jumping into a fork of the Willamette River.

More deputies showed up, as did Oregon State Police. Deputies finally confronted the man in a cow pasture, where he kicked one of them in the chest several times before being subdued as more than a dozen cattle looked on.

Authorities say 55-year-old Kevin D. Crook was arrested for investigation of trespassing, methamphetamine possession, eluding and resisting arrest.
