Yes, it is possible.

The state that you were arrested or ticketed in can send documents to the department of transporation in your state requesting suspension if the offense warranted it. The thing that has to be looked at is "was the offense committed in the current state a suspendable offense in your state." If not, your state may not suspend your license. But you may be restricted from driving in the offense state. This is a common occurrence with OWI/DWI convictions, and most states will suspend your license for a conviction on this offense in another state.

The answer depends on the agreement with the second state.

Oregon MAY choose to suspend your Oregon license completely, but that decision is made in Oregon.
