At 2:36 a.m. on December 24, a Eugene Police officer was in the Eugene Police parking lot, 300 Country Club Road, talking with a member of the public when he saw a Jeep Compass speeding westbound in the turn lane without headlights turned on. It struck a pedestrian island and sheared a sign off its mount. The sign lodged under one of the vehicle’s tires. 

The driver, later identified as Ryan Randall Carbon, age 40, of Sweethome, got out of the Jeep. Other Eugene Police units responded to contact Carbon. Carbon threatened the officers during the contact and tried to slip his handcuffs.. 

Officers suspected Carbon to be impaired and arrested him. After further investigation, Carbon was transported to Lane County Jail and lodged for DUII, Reckless Driving, and Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree.
