Ruiz Fires Eugene City Prosecutor

EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene City Manager Jon Ruiz has fired City Prosecutor Dan Barkovic, a city spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.

City spokeswoman Jan Bohman told KEZI 9 News his termination is due to his recent arrest for DUII and his refusal to take a Breathalyzer test. He has not been charged with any crimes.

He was previously put on administrative leave. He is now awaiting pending prosecution.

A Eugene police officer pulled Barkovic over near Valley River Center in late September for multiple traffic violations, including speeding and failure to drive within a lane.

    When does somebody fire Ruiz? I have not noticed him having any control of the city in his time on the job. Maybe you could do us a favor and resign.
