Foot Chase Leads To Arrest

On July 5th at about 3:23 PM, Lincoln City police patrol officers saw a male subject they knew to be, 25-year-old Billyray Branum of Lincoln City. They knew Branum had an active felony warrant out for his arrest for probation violation on a first degree burglary charge. They also knew there was probable cause for his arrest on a local charge for offensive littering. When they attempted contact, Branum fled and a short foot pursuit ensued. Additional officers arrived to assist and a perimeter was set. A call for one of our K-9 teams was done as there were no K-9’s on duty at the time. While awaiting the arrival of the K-9 team, officers located Branum hiding in amongst some construction equipment and he was taken into custody.

Branum told officers that he had ingested an unknown amount of Fentanyl just prior to the arrest so he was gven medical assistance at the scene and then transported to Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital for further medical evaluation and treatment. He was later transported to the Lincoln County Jail where he was lodged on the felony warrant along with additional charges of offensive littering, third degree escape, and interfering with a police officer. No injuries resulted from this incident. Special thanks go out to North Lincoln Fire & Rescue and Pacific West Ambulance for their response and assistance.
