PORTLAND, Ore. - The founder of Dave’s Killer Bread faces 14 new criminal charges stemming from an incident with police in November 2013.

Dave Dahl’s charges include assault, unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest.

Police say on Nov. 14, Dahl led them on a high-speed chase and rammed three patrol cars in Cedar Hills.

No one was seriously hurt.

Dahl’s family and his attorney say he suffered a mental health crisis. Dahl was released after posting bail. He was re-arrested on Friday on the new charges and booked into Washington County Jail.

Dahl spent 15 years in prison on drug and other charges before turning his family’s Milwaukie bread business into a multimillion dollar company.

His trial will start in April.
