The rate of DUI arrests for drugs has shot up considerably in Eugene, according to police.  And as KLCC’s Brian Bull reports, the rate involving drugs and alcohol is even higher.

In a tearful testimony Tuesday afternoon, Ammon Bundy began to lay out reasons for his involvement in the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon.

Malheur refuge occupation leader Ammon Bundy accused U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown on Monday of blocking his defense team’s case. And Bundy said that’s the reason for his choice to take the stand in the trial of seven occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

One year ago Saturday (October 1st), a gunman opened fire during a writing class in Snyder Hall at Umpqua Community College. He killed 9 people and then himself. The events of that day forever changed the rural community of Roseburg and Douglas County.  The one-year mark will be a sober observance.

Last year, the University of Oregon was widely criticized when it accessed the mental health records of an alleged rape victim who was suing the school. A recent grant will fund confidential legal counsel to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence on campus.

Prosecutors rested their case Tuesday in the trial of seven occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, turning it over to the defense who will begin laying out its case Wednesday.

The prosecution began the day with a gun show, presenting to the jury 22 long guns and 12 handguns found on the refuge along with copious amounts of ammunition.

Oregon’s Department of Corrections has decided not to ask the state for funds to open a new women’s prison. Oregon only has one facility for women, and it’s overcrowded.

An informant tipped off Oregon State Police that Malheur occupation leaders were traveling to John Day, Oregon, on Jan. 26, according to information revealed Wednesday in court.

Authorities used that information to take Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shawna Cox and several others into custody after stopping them en route to a community meeting in nearby Grant County on Jan. 26, 2016.

Wednesday’s testimony centered mostly on that day, which drastically altered the occupation’s trajectory.
