TILLER, Ore. – A man was arrested Sunday after deputies say he pulled a firearm on them.

Just before 11 a.m., deputies with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office went to a home in the 2100 block of Devils Knob Road to serve court papers to Daniel Schrack, 51.

Deputies said they contacted Schrack outside the home, and he became confrontational. He reportedly retreated toward a shop, but one deputy told him to stop and used his Taser, which did not have any effect.

When another deputy tried to detain the man, Schrack lunged toward the shop door, turned, and drew a firearm, pointing it at deputies, they said. He didn’t fire the weapon.

Schrack surrendered at 12:20 p.m., deputies said, and he was taken to the Douglas County Jail.

He faces charges of interfering with a police officer, obstructing governmental or judicial administration, menacing, unlawful use of a weapon, and pointing a firearm at another.
