Eugene Police Officers were dispatched to the Campbell Club located at 1670 Alder St regarding a noise complaint. When Officers attempted contact with residents at the location, one officer was grabbed from behind and the crowd surrounded the Officers.
Additional Police Officers responded in emergency mode to assist, and the crowd was cleared from the front porch of the housing cooperative. Residents inside the location refused to open the door and would not allow officers to discuss the noise violation with them. A telephonic search warrant was applied for, and a Municipal Court Judge granted the search warrant to search the residence. At that point, the door was opened voluntarily, and Officers searched the location for all residents, and evidence of Prohibited Noise (Municipal Code 4.080/4.081).
In the end, 14 residents were taken into custody and lodged at the Lane County Jail for charges of Prohibited Noise, six of those received charges for Interfering with Police, and one for Resisting Arrest. 9 residents received citations in lieu of custody for Prohibited Noise, and 8 minors were cited for MIP.
