(SALEM, Ore.) - An Oregon State Police trooper arrested an 18-year old Silverton-area teenager Saturday night found passed out in what was later determined-to-be a stolen Marion County Sheriff's Office patrol car north of Mt. Angel.

According to reports, OSP Trooper Jason Perrizo was patrolling Saturday at approximately 11:00 p.m. in the Mt. Angel area when he was told by a Mt. Angel police officer that they had a report of a recklessly driven white Ford Mustang on Highway 214.

About twenty minutes later, Trooper Perrizo was driving north on Highway 214 near Bonney Road when he spotted a parked white marked Marion County Sheriff's Office Traffic Team Ford Mustang. Thinking he was going to contact a deputy in the patrol car, he drove along side it and saw a lone male passed out in the driver's seat.

Subsequent investigation determined the person inside, 18-year old Nikita N. Efimov Jr. of Silverton, had stolen the patrol car from an off-duty deputy's Silverton-area residence. Efimov was arrested and lodged in the Marion County Jail on the following charges:

  • Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants
  • Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle
  • Reckless Driving
  • Recklessly Endangering Another Person

Marion County Sheriff's Office retrieved their vehicle from the arrest scene.

So, what's the story behind it? Did he make a bet or was dumped by his date?

What in the world is that shirt he has on? This would be a story of a bad@$$ kid who did something no one else would dare... and then he had that shirt on and looks like a pud.

He looks sorry in the pic, and he's got on a nice shirt. So let him off.

Shoulda sold it instead of passing out in it...

an American would never even conceive of such a dastardly crime! Stealing a police vehicle from the officers home! Drinking alcohol! Passed out in the front seat to enable the OSP a more "cooperative" aprehension! God, what's happening to America! Hell, a republican or demorat would have had a lawyer in the stolen automobile before they left the cops driveway! This is a very un-imaginative crime,the perp should be thoroughly shamed that he didn't make it to the Canadian border! I think he might be a hockey player from there. Thank you very much.
