Two Oregon State Police troopers were assaulted while trying to arrest a man after pulling over a car in Scappoose. 

A woman in the car says the troopers were too rough with her fiancé. Jessica Henshaw told FOX 12 the whole ordeal is very upsetting and should have never happened. 

“They arrested her husband, they arrested my fiancé and they were brutal with my fiancé,” she said. 

Oregon State Police said on Sunday, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office responded to an assault call, and an attempt to locate was later put out for a black Toyota Camry. 

At about 9 a.m., OSP troopers found a vehicle that matched the ATL with four people inside and pulled it over at the Road Runner gas station on Highway 30 in Scappoose. 

Troopers say the person of interest in the assault, 43-year-old Orin Graves of Warren, was inside the vehicle. He was arrested on outstanding warrants out of Clackamas County. 

During the investigation, troopers say a passenger in the backseat, 30-year-old Christopher Corwin from Lebanon, became combative and fought with them. 

Henshaw said that was her fiancé. 

“They got disrespectful with me when I was trying to help them out and calm him down, and they didn’t like him sticking up for me so they shoved his face on the ground and started hitting on him and stuff and broke his arm,” she said. 

Store clerks said it took several officers to eventually get control of Corwin. OSP said he was taken into custody and had to be medically sedated before being taken to the hospital with minor injuries. 

“I feel like there was no cause for them to be rough... when he didn’t do anything,” said Henshaw. 

According to OSP, Corwin has a statewide felony warrant out of Linn County, along with additional warrants. Additional charges will include resisting arrest and assault on a public safety officer. 

OSP said the two troopers who were assaulted sustained minor injuries. They were taken to the hospital, where they were treated and released.
