Portland police arrest 'repeat offenders' for street racing
The Portland Police Bureau has arrested three men, including two they call "repeat offenders," during a weekend street racing enforcement mission.
North Precinct officers, the traffic division and police's eye in the sky say they patrolled North and Northeast Portland on Saturday, Sept. 21 and Sunday, Sept. 22.
PPB announced 12 traffic stops, two towed vehicles and three arrests, all of local residents.
• Isaiah Lamar Brown, 20, faces four counts each of reckless driving and reckless endangering, plus driving with a suspended license
• Josiah Johnallen Pittman, 21, faces four counts each of reckless driving and reckless endangering
• Noah Yamya Terry, 21, faces one count each of reckless driving and reckless endangering
Police say Brown was arrested on Aug. 11 of this year for reckless driving, reckless endangering and a forged trip permit. Terry, police say, was involved in the notorious "Interstate 84 Takeover" on May 5, which resulted in reckless driving, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct charges.
Pittman has several felony and misdemeanor convictions on his record, including for strangulation and third-degree robbery. Brown has been convicted of reckless driving twice before.
Brown and Pittman remain in police custody, according to jail records. Terry was released.
