Fucking dope fiend was probably going to part it out

A 22-year-old man who investigators say was high on methamphetamine when he stole a semi and twice rammed it into a police SUV in Northeast Portland has been sentenced to 2 ⅓ years in prison.

Michael Lee Morinville jumped in the cab of the semi around 5:15 a.m. on April 21, then tried to drive away from the intersection of Northeast 33rd Avenue and Argyle Street, authorities say. The truck’s driver, who was nearby as the theft was in progress, was able to yank at the brake line connecting the cab to the trailer. That prevented the cab from traveling more than a few miles per hour, investigators say.
