U.S. marshals have arrested a man who aimed his vehicle at a Beaverton officer July 11 while police were conducting an undercover operation against suspected sex trafficking. The officer fired back at the car.
Calvin Ramone Davenport, 20, was indicted by a Washington County grand jury July 17 on numerous charges and the circuit court issued a warrant for his arrest.
