MILWAUKIE, OR (KPTV) -

A man trying to elude police ended up crashing his vehicle near the public safety building in Milwaukie early Saturday morning.

Milwaukie police said they tried to pull over a van near Highway 224 and SE Harrison Street around 12:41 a.m., but the van took off.

The driver of the van ended up driving off the roadway and crashing into landscaping shrubs right outside the police and fire stations.

Police said the driver, Gregory A. Fischer, 51, refused to comply with police directions, so a K-9 officer deployed his dog.

Fischer was taken into custody and taken to the Clackamas County jail on charges of felony attempt to elude, reckless driving, criminal mischief and driving under the influence of intoxicants.
