Multiple Eureka Police Officers worked to subdue a man they said was “extremely under the influence” yesterday about 11:20 a.m. near the intersection of Oregon Street and Highland Avenue. At one point at least five officers, attempted to hold down the struggling man.
According to scanner traffic, the man was eventually taken to the hospital. We are not sure of all the details at this point. We’ve attempted to get more information from the Eureka Police Department but as it is a weekend, getting hold of someone able to answer questions is difficult.
