GP Police Jailed Woman Sunday for Downtown Rampage Using Jack Handle

Grants Pass Police jailed a woman for a weekend rampage in which she used the handle to a hydraulic jack to threaten motorists and break a restaurant window in the downtown area.

The Police Department reports officers arrested 33-year-old Morgan Delin Weber for the incident that started at Debo Park on Sunday at 1:03 p.m..

Police said Weber was identified by multiple callers as a disorderly female near the park on SW G Street who was in and out of traffic and striking vehicles with the jack handle. No damage to any vehicles was reported, but the suspect's behavior caused public alarm as she broke out a large window at Climate City Brewing.

Weber actively resisted being placed into custody by pulling away from officers and attempting to slip out of handcuffs while spitting and blowing mucous out of her nose. A spit hood was applied to prevent exposure to officers and the public.

During transport to the Josephine County Jail, Weber struck her head against the divider in the patrol vehicle multiple times while using what was described as "colorful language." Her corrections officer requested she be placed on a detainer.

Morgan Weber was booked into jail on charges including Felony 1st-Degree Criminal Mischief, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct and the resulting Parole Violation related to convictions for Harassment, Disorderly Conduct and Escape.
