BEND, OR -- A suspect is in custody following a several hours-long stand-off in a southeast Bend mobile home park. Officers initially responded to the home on SE Brosterhous at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, for a reported roommate dispute.
They say the man – later identified as 37-year-old Tyler Scott – broke a window throwing things; at one point he came outside and threw a hammer at a police Lieutenant, narrowly missing the officer. Scott then quickly retreated to the home and refused to come out. Police helped a woman get out safely, and another man came out on his own.
Negotiators spent several hours trying to deescalate the situation, but Scott refused commands until the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) sent chemical agents into the house. He was taken into police custody and went to the hospital for evaluation. Scott is accused of Menacing, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Attempted Assault of a Public Safety Officer and Attempted Assault II.
