Police Blotter: Race on W. 18th Results in Injuries, Arrests


Lane County Mugshots: At 7:34 p.m. on April 7, a caller advised of two vehicles speed racing on W. 18th Avenue prior to crashing into a third vehicle. The speeding vehicles were: a black 1997 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Shawn Haynes, age 40, of Eugene; and a red 1996 Acura Integra driven by Amber Raeanne Puckett, 22, of Springfield. The third involved vehicle, was a 2010 Toyota Tacoma driven by Michael Patrick Walrath, 59, of Eugene.

After the crash, bystanders reported one of the drivers, later identified as Haynes, fled on foot. Due to evidence at the scene, he appeared to be injured. He was last seen running southbound on foot. An officer searching for Haynes spotted a blue 2005 Toyota Sequoia driving in the area near Todd Street, pulling into a driveway, then pulling out and appearing indecisive about travel direction. The officer became interested in the SUV and as the vehicle turned onto W. 18th, the officer spotted Haynes in the passenger seat and initiated a traffic stop on W. 18th near Greiner Street. Haynes got out of the SUV and had obvious injuries, and the officer also detected possible signs of intoxication.

When they entered the s-curve toward Oak Patch, Haynes lost control of his vehicle and entered the oncoming lane, and crashed into Walrath’s Tacoma. The Tacoma was redirected by the impact into Puckett’s vehicle.

Puckett was issued a citation in lieu of custody for Reckless Driving.

Man Claiming His Wife Was Kidnapped by FBI Taken Into Custody

Salem OR – Yesterday at around 3:45 p.m., the Marion County Sheriff’s Office was called to the intersection of Lancaster Drive NE and Monroe Avenue NE, in Salem on a reported non-injury, hit and run crash. The driver of the suspect vehicle exited his car, began shouting wild accusations and then took off running south on Lancaster Drive NE. One of the callers reported that there was a large butcher knife inside of the vehicle that the male had just run from.

Witnesses reported that Joshua Shepherd, age 41, of Salem was yelling about FBI agents and claiming his wife had been kidnapped. In addition Mr. Shepherd was talking off his clothing as he ran from the scene of the crash. A deputy contacted Mr. Shepherd close to the scene and found him only wearing his mixed martial arts style fighting shorts.

The deputy described Mr. Shepherd as 6’00” tall, with broad shoulders, very little body fat and bulky muscles. When the lone deputy first arrived Mr. Shepherd would only lay down on the ground and refused to follow the command to place his hands behind his back. The deputy stated that he felt as though Mr. Shepherd was attempting to bait him into coming closer. Numerous times the deputy told Mr. Shepherd that he was under arrest and that he was going to be tazed, if he did not comply. Mr. Shepherd refused to comply with the deputy, stating that he would kill the deputy if he came any closer.

As the second deputy arrived both men approached and Mr. Shepherd quickly spun back stating, “Come any closer and I’ll fucking kill you.” Deputies remained calm and waited for the third deputy to arrive continuing to verbally engage Mr. Shepherd and request that he peacefully surrender. The third deputy, Sergeant Jeff Stutrud arrived on scene and determined a fourth deputy was needed due to Mr. Shepherd’s continued threats to not approach him and his refusal to place his hands behind his back. While the deputies waited for the fourth deputy to arrive they continued to talk with Mr. Shepherd and request he surrender. Once the fourth officer arrived deputies requested additional units for a crowd gathering around them.

One of the deputies on scene, a twenty two year veteran stated, “Out of all of the calls I have been on this guy truly scared me.” The deputy described the man as lifting himself in a plank style approximately one inch off of the ground and holding himself in that position. The deputy stated, “This guy had that mixed martial arts build to him, it was obvious that he was capable of hurting all of us.”

The fourth officer, a Salem PD, K9 arrived on scene and a plan was put into action to take Mr. Shepherd into custody. Deputies staged medical units for Mr. Shepherd and approached him cautiously. Sergeant Stutrud and the other police officers approached Mr. Shepherd and touched his foot with their foot. This touch was to gauge Mr. Shepherd’s reaction to their approach. Mr. Shepherd immediately attempted to spin and attack the deputies. The K9 seized Mr. Shepherd and the remaining deputies took him into custody.

After being placed into custody Mr. Shepherd was carefully sat up to avoid injuring him any further. Even after being taken into custody Mr. Shepherd continued to threaten and resist deputies and medics as they attempted to treat him for the dog bite. It was apparent to deputies that Mr. Shepherd was not fit to be taken to jail and he required medical attention for the dog bite as well as a mental health evaluation.

A deputy assigned to our Mobile Crisis Response Team or (MCRT), arrived on scene and rode with Mr. Shepherd to the hospital. At the hospital Mr. Shepherd was cited and released for the crimes of Hit and Run Property Damage, Resisting Arrest and Driving on a Misdemeanor Suspended License.

It has come to the Sheriff’s Office attention that videos of this incident have been posted on YouTube and shared with the media. It is always our mission to be transparent and provide media with facts so that they may report the full story to their viewing public.

Attached to this release is the YouTube video submitted to local media by a member of the public. In addition Sergeant Baldridge is prepared to email any requesting media, the dispatch tapes as well as additional video of Mr. Shepherd being transported to the hospital. Mr. Shepherd is still being treated at the Salem Hospital.

A Jackson County Deputy Medical Examiner and an OSP detective responded to the scene and identified the deceased male as Christopher Sellars. The cause of death is pending the results of an autopsy from the State Medical Examiners office.
