Injured Deputy Back in U.S.

EUGENE, Ore. — Lane County sheriff’s deputy Drew Wattier is in San Diego, according to a Facebook page that’s updating the couple’s condition.

He and his wife, Michelle, were the victims of a hit-and-run outside a resort in Mexico.

The page goes on to say Michelle will hopefully be flown back Friday.

Her family has been taping pictures of her loved ones all over the wall at the foot of her hospital bed to lift her spirits.

The community continues to rally around the couple. There are at least two fundraisers set up.

The first will be at Full City Coffee Roasters on Pearl Street on Dec. 10.

Three Papa’s Pizza locations will donate 50 percent of the food value on Dec. 19, although you must present a flier. Click here to download the flier for the location you want to visit.
