Russell Rd., CCSO release – On July 12, 2019, at approximately 12:01 AM, A Coos County Sheriff’s Deputy was dispatched to a possible assault on 65375 Russell Road, North Bend, Coos County, Oregon. It was reported that the caller, identified as 56-year-old Emma M. Nelson, had an active warrant out of Coos County for felon in possession of a firearm. When the Deputy arrived at the residence, he found and spoke to Emma (who was seated in her car), informing her she was under arrest for an active warrant. Upon hearing the news, Emma attempted to start the vehicle and drive away. The Deputy opened the driver’s door and pulled Emma from the vehicle before she could place the vehicle into gear and drive away. Once the Deputy had Emma away from the vehicle and on the ground, Emma continued to resist arrest. Emma continued to resist by flailing around and tucking her arms beneath her body. After numerous attempts of commanding Emma to lie on her stomach and place her hands behind her back went unanswered, the Deputy had to resort to control measures to gain compliance. Subsequently, Emma was arrested for her outstanding warrant and resisting arrest. Bay Cities Ambulance was called to the scene to evaluate Emma. Emma refused treatment and was transported to the Coos County Jail without further incident.
