EUGENE, Ore. — A man accused of firing a gunshot while watching New England’s come-from-behind victory in the Super Bowl has been deemed unfit to stand trial.
Court records show a judge ordered Donald Bolden transferred from the Lane County Jail to the Oregon State Hospital.
The Register-Guard reports the move came after a psychological evaluation, the results of which were sealed by the court.
Police said Bolden was having a one-sided argument with a man at the bar of a Eugene restaurant on Feb. 5 when he pulled out a gun and fired. The bullet struck the bar.
