[ARCHIVED] Arrest for Assault on Public Safety Officer at Saturday Market

Two EPD Patrol SUVs

He was reported to have yelled at an older vendor, while flinching his upper body and posturing toward the vendor. The market’s manager stood between them until officers arrived. Two officers contacted Webb, who seemed to be in a drug-like state and would not respond to them.


After offering help through CAHOOTS and trying to reason with Webb, the officers took control of Webb’s arms to escort him out of the market after telling him he was trespassed. Webb immediately began to actively fight. Taser and pepper spray didn’t appear to affect Webb and it took approximately eight officers to get control of Webb. At one point, Webb tried to take an officer’s gun, and he scratched an officer across the face and eye.  A few hostile people yelled at officers, but a majority of the crowd was supportive and stayed back.


Webb was lodged at the Lane County Jail as a disorderly custody for Assault on a Public Safety Officer, Attempted Theft in the First Degree-Firearm, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree, and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
