Corrections Client Arrested by GP Police for Being Intoxicated While on Parole

A Josephine County Community Corrections client was arrested yesterday for violating terms of his post-prison supervision while loitering at a local restaurant.

Grants Pass Police contacted 30-year-old Dennis Alan Knight, Jr., at Abby's Pizza on NE Beacon Drive on Wednesday at about 2:40 p.m..

Officers said Knight had been reported as a suspicious person while they were on an unrelated call. They said he showed significant signs of impairment and was not capable of caring for himself, so he was placed into custody.

Knight's corrections officer was contacted and requested his client be detained for being intoxicated while under his supervision. He was lodged in jail for Felony Parole Violation and was being held on a no-bail detainer.

Jail records show Knight has been arrested five times for violating his parole since April 2023.
