He was released from jail on December 11.

Deputies were called to the victims home on Saturday, December 16, and on Monday, December 18 to investigate vandalism to the window. After the second incident Phelan was found on the ground nearby, intoxicated, and injured. He was cited and released for causing property damage.

Because of a clerical error, deputies on the scene were unable to confirm the terms of Phelan's probation, which prohibit him from contacting the victim. The district attorney's office has since filed a motion to revoke Phelan's probation.

Deputies say Phelan is known to visit the White City area. He is 5'11" and 220 pounds. He has gray hair and green eyes. If you have information about his whereabouts, call dispatch at 541-776-7206.
