Officers Randy Teig and Philip Maynard were given Police Medals for an incident on January 11, 2001 in which they shot and wounded Dwayne Tyrone McClinton after a holdup at the Clinton Street Pub (PPR #23). According to the Rap Sheet, they chased McClinton into an alley where he was fleeing from his car after the officers rammed it. Teig shot 5 times and Maynard shot 8 times at the man, who was wounded in the leg. (Teig also shot at a suspect in May, 1998, firing 11 shots and hitting the suspect once.) McClinton was "considered armed and dangerous" (Oregonian, January 12, 2001) but there is no evidence he had a gun at the time of the chase.
