Man Arrested After Pointing Gun at a Deputy (Photo) - 12/04/19

On Tuesday December 4, 2019, at 9:31 a.m., a Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to a call near the 8500 block of SW Oleson Rd. regarding a male who was making gun gestures at passing vehicles. When the deputy arrived, he was confronted by 34-year-old Daniel Bean of Portland. Mr. Bean pointed a rifle at the deputy then retreated into his home.

Deputies were later able to determine the rifle Mr. Bean pointed at the deputy was a BB gun.

Several deputies went to the location to assist, including members of the inter-agency Washington County Tactical Negotiation Team (TNT), Robot Team, and Crisis Negotiation Unit (CNU).  Deputies attempted to communicate with Mr. Bean who appeared to be having a mental health crisis. 

After more than two hours, Mr. Bean was taken into custody without injury to himself or deputies. Mr. Bean was lodged in his Washington County Jail on charges:

  • Menacing
  • Disorderly conduct in the second degree

While at the Washington County Jail, Mr. Bean’s mental health will be evaluated and he will be offered mental health resources.
