Man Arrested After Menacing Head Start Bus Driver (Photo) - 03/04/19

Redmond, OR - On Monday, March 4, 2019, at approximately 12:41 PM, a school bus driver for the Head Start program at Neighbor Impact called Deschutes County 911 to report a person had intentionally blocked in his school bus with a vehicle near NW Elm Ave and NW 27th Street.   The driver reported the person was knocking on the door of the bus and was trying to get inside.  The driver locked the door to the bus and the person was not able to enter (there were several five-year-old students on the bus at the time).  As the person walked away from the bus, he reportedly made a "finger gun" with his hand and motioned as if he was shooting the driver.  

Officers from the Redmond Police Department responded to the area and were able to locate the suspect vehicle and the suspect, nearby in the 200 block of NW Antler Loop.  The suspect was identified as Mr. William Glass Jr., 32-years-old and a Redmond resident.   

Based on the information developed by Officers, Mr. Gass was arrested for Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree and Menacing.   Mr. Gass was lodged into the Deschutes County Adult  Jail in Bend.  There were no injuries reported to law enforcement as a result of this incident.

The investigation into this incident determined it was a result of a traffic-related dispute.  It is believed the hazardous road conditions, still being experienced by drivers in Central Oregon precipitated this dispute.  The Redmond Police Department encourages drivers not to become overly angry at other drivers, and allow for extra time to get to your destination.  Courtesy and understanding do go a long way when we are all at the mercy of snow and ice-covered roadways.

Redmond Police & Deschutes DA Announce Michael Tallman's (Bremont) Arrest - 02/22/19

Redmond, OR – Early today, Friday, February 22, 2019, the Redmond Police Department and the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office learned Mr. Michael Tallman (aka, Michael Bremont), had been arrested on a fugitive from justice arrest warrant in McCracken County, Kentucky.  An arrest warrant was issued by Deschutes County Circuit Court after Mr. Tallman failed to appear to a trial readiness hearing before his scheduled October 23, 2018, trial for new sexual abuse charges.  At the time, the Redmond Police Department believed Mr. Tallman had fled or was about to flee the state.

 

Redmond Police confirmed with the US Marshall’s Office that information developed by the FBI – Bend Field Office led to a Fugitive Task Force in the Paducah, Kentucky area locating Mr. Tallman inside an RV.  The task force reportedly had the RV surrounded when Mr. Tallman allegedly attempted to flee out a window and then run on foot.  Mr. Tallman was taken into custody on the arrest warrant, and two new local charges of Fleeing or Evading Police (on foot) and Resisting Arrest.  He was taken to the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office Adult Jail in Paducah, Kentucky.

 

At this time, the Redmond Police Department and the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office are very appreciative of the work conducted by the US Marshalls Office and the FBI, particularly the work done by the FBI – Bend Field Office for their perseverance in helping locate Mr. Tallman.

 

It is unknown when Mr. Tallman will be transported to Deschutes County.  Questions on the status of his extradition and transport should be directed to the District Attorney’s Office.
