Agency Assist/ Psych Problem/CED Deployment
1665 S. Riverside Dr. #155
Fire responded on a psych problem/possible suicidal person. They located a 22-year-old man with a belt around his neck. He started acting even more strangely, so they backed out and waited for police. Officers found the man with the belt around his neck, hiding under the blanket on his bed. When the man refused to follow instructions, officers picked him up to carry him downstairs for a medical evaluation. After the man kicked officers a few times and tried to punch them in the face, an officer deployed a Taser to stop the struggle. At this point, the man’s younger brother became angry that a Taser had been used, so he attacked the officers. Both subjects were booked for assault on a police officer and obstruction.
