Psychological Evaluation

Pittsburg/Bay Point - 1311-3160

Officers were detailed to the station regarding the station agent’s report of a male subject acting erratic.  Upon contacting the subject, the officers determined he was a danger to himself and in need of a psychiatric evaluation.  However, before the officers could detain him, the subject jumped over the fare gates, into the paid area, eventually making his way to platform level.  During this time, track-way power was turned off as the officers feared the subject would jump onto the track-way.  Eventually, the officers, both of whom are “crisis intervention” trained, managed to convince the subject to return to the concourse.  On reaching the concourse and being physically restrained by the officers, the subject physically resisted their efforts and a short struggle ensued before he was safely restrained in handcuffs.  A sergeant responded to perform the use of force investigation.  An ambulance then transported the subject to the county hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.  No injuries were sustained by police personnel or the subject, and there was no negative impact on train service.  Based upon the totality of the circumstances, no criminal complaint will be sought against the subject.
