EUGENE, Oregon - A specialized team in Eugene, Oregon comes into action with a mental health-related 911 call.
"Pretty much everybody we see is for one reason or another is in a state of crisis," said Manning Walker.
Walker is a medic and Laurel Lisovskis is a mental health crisis manager. The pair are members of a mobile mental health crisis intervention team called CAHOOTS, which stands for Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets. They answer calls like suicide interventions and overdoses. They're unarmed and most of the time, without police backup.

CBS took an exclusive ride and their first call was for a woman they've met before, who they believe is schizophrenic. She said her name was Kayla.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Seeking to halt federal agents from arresting people in courthouses for immigration violations, a panel of judges in Oregon has asked the state's Supreme Court chief justice to impose a rule stating that no one should be subjected to arrest without a warrant.
Several judges on the Uniform Trial Court Rules Committee said Friday the matter is of urgent concern because immigrants, even legal residents, are afraid to go to court because of fear they will be detained by U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement agents.
The agents have been detaining people who appear for court proceedings and are suspected of being in the United States illegally. In one incident, captured in a videotape shown by lawyers to the committee, ICE agents pepper-sprayed family members of a person they were trying to arrest. That incident happened in a courthouse in Astoria, Oregon.
The committee voted in favor of recommending to Oregon Chief Justice Martha Walters that she establish a rule that anyone inside a courthouse or in the immediate area be safe from arrest by immigration agents if they don't have a judicial warrant.
Some of the judges on the committee, though, worried that ...
Samuel Adams’ new Halloween beer is so scary strong – it’s illegal in 15 states, including Oregon.
That’s because the beer, called “Utopias,” has a frighteningly high alcohol content of 28 percent per bottle.
To put that into perspective, a regular Samuel Adams lager has an alcohol content of just 5 percent.
The price tag on a bottle of “Utopias” might also chill your spine. Suggested retail is $210.
According to Forbes, this is Samuel Adams’ 11th batch of the Utopias line, which they’ve been offering in limited releases since 2002.
“Utopias” is available to purchase in Washington.
It is illegal in the following 15 states:
