EUGENE, Ore. -- A man was arrested Nov. 6, after threatening a police officer with a knife, according to the Eugene Police Department.  

Officers responded to the 2700 block of Oak Street for a dispute at 3:10 a.m. where a man was reported to be "busting down the door."

An officer arrived on scene and found the man on a nearby sidewalk. According to police, 27-year-old Kyle Irvin Wayne Jones ignored the officer's command to stop and drove away from the scene. The officer said he returned shortly after but ignored the commands to put his hands up. 

Jones reportedly had a fixed blade sheath on the side of his waistband. He stood in the entrance of his appartment complex yelling he had a knife and asked for police to shoot him. 

Officers say they used a non-lethal round on Jones but he continued to resist arrest even as officers used a Taser and tackled him to the ground. He continued to be disorderly throughout his contact with EPD.

Jones was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and later to Lane County Jail.

He is charged with elude by vehicle, disorderly conduct, interferring with police and resisting arrest.
