A Lane County Sheriff’s deputy observed Williams walking on Hwy. 58.  The deputy advised Williams multiple times that he was under arrest, however Williams continued to try and walk away.  The deputy waited until backup arrived prior to trying to take Williams into physical custody.

An Oregon State Police trooper arrived at which time they attempted to place Williams into custody. Williams, standing in the middle of Hwy. 58, became physically combative and bit the deputy, causing injury to his finger.  Other units were able to respond and eventually get Williams into custody without other serious injury.
