The man was ultimately detained and given medical treatment on-scene and later taken to Sutter Coast Hospital and placed on a metal health hold.

Griffin commends Sergeant Wilson And Officer Sanders for sticking to their training.

“The whole video I watched, it looks like a post-training video for dealing with mental health issues, suicidal subjects trying to de-escalate properly with TAZER type stuff,” Griffin, “I mean this was something that happened very quickly, and they handled it very appropriately. “
