Drivers arrested after high-speed crash on Diamond Lake Boulevard in Roseburg

A high-speed crash early Saturday on Diamond Lake Boulevard led to the arrest of two drivers on suspicion of reckless driving and reckless endangering, Roseburg police said.

Jesse Michael Stout, 27, of Coos Bay and Joseph Michael Gazarek, 21, of Roseburg were seen by an officer leaving a parking lot in the 24000 block of Diamond Lake at about 2:15 a.m., police said.

The westbound vehicles accelerated rapidly, and police estimated they were traveling close to 100 mph.

Stout failed to make the turn from Diamond Lake onto Stephens Street, driving onto the sidewalk and rolling the 2001 Hyundai Tiburon, police said.

Both drivers had two passengers. No injuries were reported.

Stout also was in possession of brass knuckles and was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon, police said.

Stout and Gazarek were released from the Douglas County Jail on bail Monday after spending the weekend in custody.
