BANDON, Ore. — A Bandon man is in jail after police say he brandished what appeared to be a rifle at officers.
According to the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Charles Crum called 911 shortly after 6 p.m. on Tuesday night, requesting an ambulance.
Due to Crum’s past history with law enforcement, a police officer was dispatched to the property south on Marple Lane, south of Bandon.
After refusing to speak with police, other officers arrived on scene. Crum then came out of his fifth-wheel trailer, holding what officers believed to be a rifle.
All four officers, fearing for their safety, opened fire at Crum. According to the Coos County District Attorney, Crum was shot twice in the arm. He was transported to the hospital, but refused medical treatment.
He’s currently lodged at the Coos County Jail.
The Coos County District Attorney will review the case to determine if the officers took appropriate action in shooting Crum.
