Logan Kitzhaber, son of former governor, arrested in Portland

The teenage son of former Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber was arrested by the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/PqDfhe ) the Lincoln County warrant was for assault, DUI, reckless driving, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.

John Kitzhaber bailed his son out of Multnomah County Jail late Wednesday afternoon, October 26, 2016.

He told a paramedic at the time that he had drank a beer before getting in his vehicle to drive to Lincoln City. Friday marks his 19th birthday. Kitzhaber's alleged sideswiping of the motor home caused his 2008 Toyota Prius "to roll onto its side".

Kitzhaber was held at Multnomah County on $150,000 bail, before his bond was paid and he was released.

Kitzhaber was airlifted to the hospital from the crash site for his injuries.

Court records show Kitzhaber also told authorities that he smoked marijuana the night before the crash.

The occupants of the motor home hit by Kitzhaber - Port Angeles, Wash., residents Stanley Lyckman, 67, and Martha Lyckman, 63 - were taken to the hospital and released. According to the Oregonian, Kitzhaber has one previous conviction for speeding.
