Portland, OR -

The co-founder of Dave's Killer Bread is back in Washington County Jail after pleading not guilty Friday to criminal charges from a police chase last November.

The Oregonian reports 51-year-old Dave Dahl is being held on $520,000 bail. He had been charged including assault, unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest.

Dahl was arrested on Nov. 14 after leading Washington County deputies on a half-mile chase and ramming two patrol cars. Three deputies had non-life-threatening injuries.

Court documents show the deputies were initially responding to a 911 call from a woman in Dahl's home who reported he was having a mental breakdown.

The face of the organic bread company has a criminal history that includes 15 years in and out of prison on drug, assault and robbery charges.
