Sullivan dropped the gun when told to do so by police and he was jailed. Charges include:
•Unlawful Use of a Weapon •Interfering with a Police Officer •Unlawful Possession of a Firearm •Possession of a Short Barreled Shotgun •Menacing •Criminal Trespass II •Possession of Less than one ounce of Marijuana
The incident began last night at around 9 p.m. in the Bethel neighborhood when Eugene police tried to stop a Sullivan for several traffic violations. Instead of stopping, the bicyclist took off with officers chasing him on foot. When police approached the Sullivan , he pulled a sawed-off shotgun from his backpack.
