Man accused of drunken train-jacking

(The following story by David Krough appeared at kgw.com on January 24.)

EUGENE, Ore. Deputies near Eugene arrested a man suspected of trying to steal a train when he was drunk.

According to Lane County Sheriffs, a Union Pacific engineer said a drunk man snuck aboard the locomotive which was pulling several cars, and started pressing buttons and levers -- and actually had the engine halfway started before he was confronted around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The engineer said he was harassing the crew and refused to leave.

When deputies arrived they found 22-year-old Caleb Gary nearby. He was arrested and charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle and trespassing.
