Campbell’s attorney, David Kurtz, said his client is potentially facing charges in Oregon and would likely be “unavailable” for some time.Campbell, 37, of Seattle pleaded guilty in Clark County Superior Court to possession of a stolen motor vehicle and reckless driving, a gross misdemeanor, in connection with the June 11 incident, which reportedly began in Portland’s Summer neighborhood.According to the Portland Police Bureau, officers responded about 2 p.m. to a report of a carjacking in the 5000 block of Northeast 86th Avenue. The car’s owner, Latrese Pack, a driver for Postmates, a food delivery service, was injured during the incident after she tried to stop the thief, identified by police as Campbell, and got hung up on the car as it sped off.Pack told The Columbian’s news partner KATU-TV that she was making a delivery and left her 2008 Chevrolet Impala running and the door open. While dropping off the order, she turned and saw a woman getting into her car. Pack said she reached her hand through the partially open driver’s side window to unlock the car, but the thief sped off and she fell.last_img
