2 OSP troopers sent to hospital by 'combative' suspect

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Two Oregon State Police troopers were sent to the hospital with minor injuries on Sunday after OSP said a "combative" man assaulted the two troopers. 

Christopher Corwin, 30, was arrested after he was medically sedated by multiple law enforcement agencies, including an off-duty Forest Grove police officer. Corwin will be charged with resisting arrest and assault on a public safety officer. In addition, Corwin was wanted on multiple warrants, including a state-wide felony warrant out of Linn County. 

Troopers came into contact with Corwin after they were investigating an assault call against another man in Columbia County. The Sheriff's Office put out the vehicle information of the driver, 43-year-old Orin Graves. At approximately 9 a.m., Troopers located Graves' black Toyota Camry at the Road Runner gas station in Scappoose.

Graves was then arrested on outstanding arrest warrants out of Clackamas County. Columbia County deputies are investigating the alleged assault that Graves is a person of interest in. 

During the investigation, Corwin assaulted the two officers. Both were transported to Legacy Emmanuel and treated for minor injuries. They were released shortly after.
