Weekend Fight at South Grants Pass Bar Resulted in Arrests of Husband & Wife

A weekend fight at a south Grants Pass bar resulted in the arrests of a man and his wife.

The Grants Pass Police Department reports officers were alerted to a disturbance at the 238 Bar on Williams Highway on Friday around 10:20 p.m..

Police said they responded to reports of a large physical altercation at the bar and they were advised that subjects were starting to disperse after the fight spilled out of the bar and into the parking lot.

An investigation determined that 37-year-old Dustin Quentin Simas was involved in a confrontation with another group inside the bar. He claimed he was hit when he came out of the restroom and witnesses said he was wildly swinging at anyone he could find in the business.

Meanwhile, his wife -- 37-year-old Rebecca Christine Simas -- started engaging in threatening behavior toward another woman and started yelling at individuals in the bar. The victim advised Simas struck her with a closed fist and another patron had video of the woman grabbing his phone while he was recording.

Dustin Simas and Rebecca Simas were placed into custody. He was lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Disorderly Conduct while she was jailed for Physical Harassment and Disorderly Conduct. Both were being held without bail.
