Intoxicated I-5 hitchhiker arrested

Tony Lee Wood was wanted on nine warrants from seven different jurisdictions

WOODReports of an intoxicated man hitchhiking and stumbling into traffic Monday afternoon on Interstate 5 near the Carmen Drive exit led to the arrest of a person wanted on nine warrants out of seven different jurisdictions.

Oregon State Police started receiving calls around 5:35 p.m. about a man who was stumbling and acting strangely while hitchhiking on Interstate 5. An OSP trooper found Tony Lee Wood, 38, about 20 minutes later at the off-ramp to Highway 217.

OSP Lt. Gregg Hastings said Wood, who is from Portland, was wanted on nine outstanding warrants from seven different jurisdictions — Deschutes County, Klamath County, Multnomah County, Linn County, Troutdale, West Linn and Gladstone. Six of the warrants were for failure to appear on various misdemeanor charges; the others were for criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and furnishing false information to a police officer.

Wood was being held Tuesday in the Clackamas County Jail.
