Oregon police arrest man wanted by Army

EUGENE, Ore. — An Oregon state trooper has arrested a man accused of deserting the U.S. Army while facing a court martial in Missouri for child rape and child indecency charges.
Oregon State Police say Elmer Frederick Hoffman III, 46, was arrested following a traffic stop Friday on I-5 south of Eugene. After giving a name and birthday that did not match records, police say he acknowledged he was a deserter wanted by the Army and was using a stolen Colorado license plate.
Oregon police said he fled in March while on trial, and was convicted during his absence. He was held for the Army at the Lane County jail.
A Missouri lawyer who represented Hoffmann in the court martial proceedings could not be reached Saturday.
