Assault on Public Safety Officer, Reckless Driving, Resisting Arrest – On March 22, at approximately 12:44 a.m., police responded to the parking lot at the top of Skinner’s Butte, regarding a male subject who was parked in a Chevy Suburban after park hours. When police attempted to contact the subject, he was uncompliant and behaved erratically, leading officers to believe he might be intoxicated. He was flailing around in the vehicle, and was partially concealed by a blanket. The officer attempted to secure the parking lot to prevent the vehicle from leaving and possibly endangering the public. As the officer was at the gate, he observed the Chevy Suburban approaching quickly from behind and directly toward his vehicle. The suburban then drove off the roadway and around the officer, and before reaching the street, it accelerated in reverse and crashed into the officer’s vehicle. The officer again attempted to contact the subject, who continued to behave erratically, and was holding a long blunt object. Officers gained access to the subject, and when they attempted to detain him, the subject resisted and a taser was deployed. The subject, Glen Martin Fisher, age 42, of Eugene, was taken into custody, and arrested for Attempted Assault on a Public Safety Officer, Reckless Driving, Resisting Arrest and Violation of Park Rules.
