A southeast Portland man was lodged in Multnomah County Justice Center early Sunday morning on multiple charges after he was stopped and arrested while driving under the influence of intoxicants with his 7-year old son in the vehicle.
On November 9, 2008 at approximately 1:09 a.m. Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper Justin Lane stopped a 1997 Plymouth Voyager van southbound on Interstate 205 near Foster Road for driving without lights as it nearly was struck from behind by another vehicle. Subsequent investigation led to the arrest of the van's driver, BRIAN PHILLIP LYNE, age 46, from southeast Portland, for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants and Recklessly Endangering Another Person as his son was a passenger.
LYNE was initially taken into custody without incident and found in possession of a small amount of marijuana. Once seated in the OSP patrol car LYNE began kicking the rear passenger side window, completely kicking out the window leaving a 1/2 inch gap between the door and vehicle frame.
After being restrained, LYNE was transported to the Multnomah County Justice Center where he also was combative with jail staff. LYNE was lodged for DUII, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and Criminal Mischief in the First Degree. He was also cited for Possession of Less than an Ounce of Marijuana, Breath Test Refusal and Driving without Lights.
The child's mother responded to the scene to get the boy.
