GLADSTONE, Ore. (KOIN) — A Clackamas County deputy was injured when he stepped on nails embedded in concrete to keep people from climbing over a wrought iron fence, puncturing his foot to the bone.
Late Monday night, Deputy Steve Martin and another deputy went to a home in the 18100 block of SE Addie Street in unincorporated Milwaukie on a call about a domestic disturbance.
The home was surrounded by a fence that was closed. The deputy jumped over the fence but landed on a long nail embedded in the concrete. It penetrated to the bone and he has not been able to work since the incident.
The homeowner told a police supervisor he would remove the embedded nails.
No one was arrested in the domestic disturbance. But the overall case is with the district attorney’s office.
