Police accuse man of felony strangulation

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Roseburg man was arrested and jailed over the weekend, charged by police with felony strangulation and harassment after an incident on Lookingglass Road.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff's office website, police arrested Shaun Lowry, 32, on Friday night at his residence on Lookingglass Road.

According to the Douglas County dispatch logs, a woman called 911 and whispered to send police to the home.

Lowry was arrested just after 10:30 p.m. and charged by authorities with felony strangulation and menacing.

Lowry posted $5,625 bail and was released from jail early Saturday morning, according to DCSO's website.

Lowry was arrested by Roseburg police in July 2012, when police said they had to use a Taser to subdue him when he allegedly wouldn't comply with their commands.

Lowry told KPIC News that police overreacted by using a Taser. The charges of Harassment and Obstructing Governmental Administration were dismissed in October 2012.

Lowry pleaded no contest to fourth degree assault on the same day the charges were dropped.  That charge was from an incident that took place in 2011.
