ROSEBURG, Ore. — A Coos Bay woman who responded to a man’s request for assistance has been arrested for violating a restraining order that prohibits her from going near him.

The News-Review reports Christopher Nelson of Coos Bay had trouble with his car Tuesday in Roseburg. He called 56-year-old Kathryn Leany for help. Nelson, however, has a restraining order against Leany which restricts her from being within 150 feet of him.

Police lodged Leany at the Douglas County Jail.
