(MEDFORD, OR) – Two people accused of ramming the patrol car of a Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy last month have been arrested in Oregon.  Wayne Pearson and Shavon Willard were also wanted for crimes in Madison and Bonneville counties. Authorities from local, state, and federal agencies in Medford, Oregon located the pair last Thursday afternoon. Pearson reportedly tried to ram another patrol car, prompting police to open fire. Both suspects were hospitalized for gunshot wounds. Officials say Pearson and Willard will face additional felony charges in Oregon before they’re extradited to Idaho.
