Cwyk 2021

On December 15, at 12:03 a.m., a man later identified as Korbin Alcide Renaud, age 30, of Eugene, was spotted driving a Class C RV recklessly down W. 11th and S. Bertelsen by a sergeant. The sergeant initiated a traffic stop, but Renaud fled. 


Renaud was driving all over the roadway, but not at speeds. He eluded officers over to Oak Patch and W. 18th, where he struck a parked vehicle. He continued driving and in the area of W. 17th and Buck, he swerved into a yard, struck a large rock, and broke the driveline of the RV. The driving left thousands of dollars of damage throughout several residential properties in the neighborhood.


He exited and fled on foot but was captured a short time later when he was located by K9 Officer Owen Griffith and K9 Cwyk and he was concealed in some brush in a residential backyard. After further investigation, he was found to be intoxicated. He was arrested and lodged at Lane County Jail on DUII, Elude by Vehicle, Elude on Foot, Reckless Driving and Driving While Suspended Misdemeanor, Hit and Run, and he was cited for Driving Uninsured / Fail to Drive in Single Lane. Case  21-19668
