Bend Police say officers responded to a report around 10:25 a.m. of a man threatening to kill someone behind the Best Western Plus on Grandview Drive north of Cooley Road. The hotel went into lockdown as a result.

That’s when, police say, Olsen, 36, went to his encampment nearby and grabbed a bow and arrow, then returned. 

Olsen allegedly pointed the bow and arrow at the victim and made threats before going back to his encampment, police said.

Olsen was arrested and was taken to Deschutes County Jail on charges of menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and second-degree disorderly conduct.
