At approximately 2:45pm today LCSO deputies and EPD officers responded to Spencer Butte Park on S. Willamette St. regarding the report of an armed subject. A caller had advised that a female was in the park waving a gun around and pointing it at her head.
Upon arrival officers and deputies began searching for the female. She was seen near the parking lot and retreated into the brush when contacted by authorities. As officers and deputies closed in on her, she continued to try and walk away from them. She was taken into custody and a bb-gun was found in her possession.
The female was identified as 39 year old Shelly Ann Reed. Reed had a confirmed warrant for her arrest from an unrelated case. She was lodged at the Lane County Jail on the warrant and a new charge of Disorderly Conduct.
