The Eugene police department were surrounded by an aggressive crowd trying to interfere with officers making a drug bust Friday afternoon.
The suspect resisted arrest and required multiple officers to hold him, and at one point needed to tase the suspect, while they attempted to put him in handcuffs.
Bystanders screamed ‘police brutality’ over and over again while demanding to know why the man was being detained and became belligerent when officers would not disclose the details of the suspect’s arrest.
As the crowd grew more unruly backup was called and officers had to utilize pepper spray to control the crowd.
According to KVAL, Preston Scott Hancock, 28, was cited for possession of marijuana and Jeffery Don Walton, 29, was taken into custody for resisting arrest and interfering with police.
