Case: 1607-0005

Officers were dispatched to conduct a welfare check on a male subject who was causing a disturbance and refusing to leave the station. Once the officers contacted the male it was determined that he was in need of a psych evaluation. The officers attempted to escort the male from the platform, but he refused to move voluntarily resulting in the officers having to use physical force to control him and place him into handcuffs. The male was subsequently placed on a psychiatric detention and transported the hospital for evaluation. The Lieutenant responded for the use of force investigation.
