Illegal camp closed by police
"The police officers yesterday gave us a notice quarter to 7 p.m. and said we had to be out by 8 a.m. this morning," said camper Elijah Davis.

"At this point in Eugene, if we were to sleep in public it's a violation, we can be cited," Davis said. "In fact I got $150 dollar ticket yesterday. I have a wife and service animal, so I did provide a tent for them to sleep in therefore my wife and I both got $150 tickets."
