      Suspected burglar survives falling 40 feet from tree after chase

      ALOHA, Ore. - The bad apple didn't fall far from the tree.

      Washington County sheriff's deputies said they chased a suspected burglar up a tree in Aloha on Saturday, then arrested him after he fell.

      Bret T. Davis, 46, was about 40 feet up when he fell and sustained non-life-threatening injuries, deputies said.

      Deputies responded to a burglary call on S.W. Pheasant Dr. on Saturday afternoon around 2:40 p.m. They said when they showed up, Davis ran into a wooded area behind the house and they chased him with a K-9.

      Deputies said they found Davis in a tree less than a mile away, but he refused to come down. He climbed higher instead, before finally falling.

      Davis was charged with first-degree burglary, third-degree robbery, fourth-degree assault and second-degree theft.

      The homeowner also suffered minor injuries.
