COOS BAY, Ore. -- A Coos Bay man was arrested just after midnight Thursday morning after police spotted what appeared to be an altercation between two men.

Around 12:41 a.m. Thursday, Coos County Sheriff’s deputies spotted a black 1991 Honda Accord parked on Libby Lane near mile post 1.5 west of Coos Bay.

Deputies observed two men outside the car who appeared to be having an argument, according to the report.

Deputies made contact with the pair, 35-year-old Robert Senn III of Coos Bay and another 35-year-old Coos Bay man. Police say the man told deputies that Senn was having an “episode,” and that he was just trying to get away from Senn.

Senn was in the middle of the road and deputies requested he move from the road multiple times, police said, but he refused to comply was told he was under arrest for Disorderly Conduct.

As deputies attempted to arrest him, he pulled away and attempted to run, police said. Deputies drew a taser and told Senn to stop or he would be tazed. "Once Mr. Senn realized this, he stopped, and was taken into custody," police said in the report.

After being placed into custody, deputies located a small amount of heroin on Senn’s person, police said.

Senn was also on parole and his parole officer authorized a detainer for him, according to the report.

He was arrested for PCS Heroin, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct II and Parole Violation.

Senn was transported to the Coos County Jail without further incident. He was booked, lodged and held with no bail for the Parole Violation, police said.

The other man was not detained and released at the scene. The vehicle was towed by Mast Towing.
