Disorderly conduct arrest

Hit-and-run arrest

At 12:27 a.m. today, Clatsop County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Robert Scott Devries, 55, for first-degree assault, hit-and-run, reckless driving and vehicular assault of a bicyclist/pedestrian. He was booked into the Clatsop County Jail.

Mistreatment arrest

At 3:48 p.m. Saturday, Warrenton Police, with the help of Oregon State Police, responded to a report of a disturbance on Seventh Avenue in Hammond, where neighbors could hear a lot of yelling inside. Officers confronted the man, John Marshall Lancaster, 52, in the driveway, where he is alleged to have yelled at the officers, while making irrational statements about the holy spirit. 

Officers attempted to do a welfare check on Lancaster’s elderly parents inside the home, but Lancaster got in front of the officers, blocking their way and acting like he wanted to fight, police said. Then Lancaster got physical with the officers. He was taken into custody, but resisted arrest and there was an altercation on the home’s front porch. Once Lancaster was in custody, officers were able to check on the elderly couple. Officers noted that Lancaster’s parents may not have been taken care of. Lancaster was booked into the Clatsop County Jail on charges of first-degree criminal mistreatment, harassment, interfering with making a police report and resisting arrest.

A person was contacted to help care for the couple, police said, and officers will meet today with the Northwest Senior and Disability services to discuss the couple’s long-term care. Lancaster is likely to receive a mental health evaluation, as well.
