Bailey, Michael Glenn            40 Year-Old Male | Eugene, OR



On November 1st at 2326 hours, a Springfield Police Department patrol Officer was conducting a vehicle patrol of the area around 1975 5th Street. Earlier that day, the Officer had been advised of the presence of multiple wanted suspects at the address. Due to the Officer’s proactive efforts, visual identification of Michael Glenn Bailey was established in the apartment complex. The Officer observed Bailey entering a previously contacted apartment at which point additional Officers arrived on scene.

An individual who exited the residence confirmed that a male visually identified as Bailey was in the residence, at which point officers made contact with a female who also exited the residence. Bailey briefly exited, but when verbally contacted by officers, he quickly returned inside. Officers initiated a plan to remove the female’s children who were in the residence, at which point Bailey began barricading himself in the rear of the residence. Officers attempted to communicate with Bailey, however he refused to communicate.

SWAT was deployed to the scene and continued efforts to contact Bailey. Less than lethal measures were utilized to breach a window, which resulted in response from Bailey. A sergeant with the SPD Crisis Negotiation Team established contact with Bailey and was able to persuade the suspect to exit the residence and be taken into custody. Bailey was arrested on-scene without incident and transported to the Lane County Jail.


Bailey was arrested on several outstanding felony warrants and lodged at Lane County Jail.
