This clown and his accomplice are facing a laundry list of charges after Thursday car chase on I-84.

Mid-morning Thursday, Oregon State Patrol and Hood River County Sheriff’s got a report of a vehicle moving at a very high rate of speed on the interstate West of Hood River.

The occupants, 30-year-old Patricia Marie Motley of Gresham, OR, and 28-year-old Aaron Joseph Smith, from Rosamind CA, were attempting to elude officers in a 2011 Subaru Legacy.

Officers attempted to stop the car West of Hood River, but the stolen car would not stop.  Spike strips were finally used to stop the two, the car hitting a guardrail after blowing it’s tires.     It’s a laundry list of charges for both.     For Motley:

* Fail to Appear – Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle / Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine (Clackamas County warrant)
* Theft in the Second Degree (two separate Clackamas County warrants)
* Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (Multnomah County warrant)
* Fail to Appear – Possession of Burglar Tools, Theft in the Second Degree (Multnomah County warrant)
* Fail to Appear – Theft in the Third Degree (Multnomah County warrant), plus SIX other charges related to the chase.

Smith is also facing numerous charges:

* Dangerous Drugs (Multnomah County)
* Parole Violation (Multnomah County)
* Fail to Appear – Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, ID Theft, and Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine (Clackamas County)

Perhaps the most lunatic part of this whole event is Smith’s mug shot.    Bet the boys in jail will love seeing that picture of him!     Both will be spending some time behind bars.

Pictured below are Motley, and the car they took.
