Corvallis Police Arrest Male for Unlawful Use of a Weapon
Shortly after 8:00pm, on May 8, 2015, Corvallis Police responded to the 1600 Block of NW Harrison Blvd. for a fight between room-mates that involved a knife. The parties involved were separated when police arrived.
Officers learned the two involved parties, 28 year old Michael Helms and 31 year old Lucas Teer, were arguing over Teer inviting a third male subject to stay at their apartment. When Teer and Helms argued, the situation became heated, and Helms pulled a knife on Teer and his friend two times. Helms was disarmed during the argument, and received a minor cut with his own knife when he was disarmed.
Helms was arrested and charged with one count of Menacing, one count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon and one count of Disorderly Conduct. Helms was arrested and transported to the Benton County Jail. His bail is currently set at $170,000.
Teer was also arrested and charged with one count of Disorderly Conduct. He was cited and released at the scene.
