CERT, Central Oregon Emergency Response Team – the area’s version of SWAT – was eventually called in to arrest Jesse William Patterson when a search warrant was obtained for 63010 Tuscany Drive after his wife ran to a neighbor’s home and contacted police to report the domestic violence incident about 3:25 a.m., June 8, Bend Police Lt. Ben Gregory said in a news release.

Because the injured woman, Stacy Lorainne Patterson, 40, told police her husband was likely armed and then the discovery by police that the suspect had outstanding arrest warrants for probation violations and attempting to elude police by vehicle in an April 2008 incident, the CERT team was activated to handle the potentially volatile and dangerous situation.

Several attempts by police negotiators failed to coax Jesse Patterson from the residence, and CERT eventually entered the home and arrested him without incident, the lieutenant said.

Patterson was transported to and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail. Charges from the recent incident include attempted murder, second-degree assault, felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a firearm and menacing. Patterson was also held on outstanding warrants for felony attempt to elude, reckless driving, reckless endangering, two counts of probation violation for fourth-degree assault, and probation violation for first-degree criminal mistreatment, Gregory stated in a news release.

The victim was transported by ambulance to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend for treatment, Lt. Gregory reported.
