Complaints from other drivers helped lead police to a Portland man accused of speeding, passing on shoulders and driving recklessly on Interstate 5.
Oregon State Police began receiving calls at 12:35 p.m. Monday about a gold 1999 Ford Taurus driving dangerously on the highway.
At 12:50 p.m., a trooper spotted the car near Brooks. Police said the car slowed down approaching the Salem-area, but then failed to pull over when the trooper attempted a traffic stop after exiting I-5 onto Salem Parkway Avenue.
The driver finally stopped near Hyacinth Street Northeast.
Troopers took the driver, identified as Jeremy English, 26, of Portland, into custody without further incident.
He was booked in the Marion County Jail and is facing charges of reckless driving and multiple counts of recklessly endangering another person.
Police said they received more than 15 calls from other people on the road about English's driving.
Drivers, pedestrians or cyclists are encouraged to report any aggressive, dangerous or potentially intoxicated drivers by calling 911 or 1-800-24-Drunk.
