PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man was arrested Saturday after vandalizing a vehicle and attempting to run from police, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

East Precinct Officers responded just before 5 a.m. to a home in the 6600 block of Northeast Broadway on the report that a man was threatening his ex-girlfriend and damaged a parked car at her home.

According to police, officers arrived at the home and talked to the victim, who told police that the suspect, Tyler Beasley, 23, was texting her and planning to come back to the home.

Officers waited down the street as Beasley arrived in a car driven by another female.

When Beasley saw police, he got back into the car, and the driver pulled away.

Police said officers then got behind the vehicle and stopped it in a residential parking lot at Northeast 67th Avenue and Tillamook Street.

Beasley got out of the vehicle and started to run away, but ran back to the car and got into the back seat as the female driver got out.

He climbed over the seat and pushed on the gas pedal with his hands, and slipped the car into reverse, backing it into a police car.

The officer in the car pushed the suspect vehicle forward so Beasley could not escape, but Beasley turned the steering wheel, hit a parked car, and drove up over a walkway and got stuck.

Beasley got out of the car, and officers took him into custody after a struggle.

Medical personnel responded to check Beasley for injuries after suffering some facial lacerations while struggling with officers.

After receiving treatment at the scene, Beasley was taken to jail.

Beasley was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and faces multiple charges including two counts of criminal mischief, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, attempt to elude by vehicle, interfering with a peace officer, resisting arrest, and driving while revoked.

According to police, Beasley also had an outstanding warrant for hit-and-run.

No officers were injured during this incident and the police car sustained only minor damage.
