University of Oregon police arrested an unarmed, adult male on Oct. 5 after the man had made loud threats at the Erb Memorial Union on the UO campus, and later fought with police.
Police don’t believe the situation poses any ongoing threat to the campus.
Travis William Crum, date of birth 1968-12-08, of Eugene, was observed by many people creating a disruption and threatening to harm nearby people at the EMU about 2:30 p.m. Crum, wearing a green hostpital-scrub-style shirt and camouflage pants, then reportedly left the EMU and headed west past Collier House.
A UOPD bike officer intercepted him at the Memorial Quadrangle near the Knight Library, but the man ran. A citizen intervened and tackled Crum, who continued to fight as the bike officer and other UOPD officers subdued him and took him into custody in the quad. He was booked at Lane County Jail on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and attempted assault of a public safety officer. Crum is not affiliated with the university. The Lane County Jail provides mental health evaluations for inmates as appropriate.
