Personnel from the United State’s Coast Guard, Coos County Parole and Probation, and the Coos County Sheriff’s Office all aided in the investigation. 57 year old Roger McPherson Jr. was contacted by his Probation Officer at the door of his boat, which was also his residence, in the boat basin. Mr. McPherson refused to cooperate and was placed under arrest for a probation violation. Mr. McPherson began to fight with both his probation officer and another probation officer that was present.
