Officer’s Force Legally Justified

EUGENE, Ore. — The Lane County District Attorney ruled that a Eugene Police officer used justifiable force during a recent arrest.

Officer Randy Ellis was responding to reports of a trespasser on June 27 on Patterson Street near East Broadway.

EPD says the suspect resisted and during the struggle Ellis struck the suspect on the head. Initially, investigators said it appeared the assailant was knocked unconscious, but the District Attorney’s investigation showed that never happened.
