On Friday, May 14, 2021 at 06:52 AM, 100 Mile House RCMP along with North District Provincial Support Team attended to a report of a suicidal man in the Fallsway Road area in Lone Butte BC.

RCMP arrived on scene and started to converse with the man through the open trailer door. The man responded by leaving the trailer without the knife and having a physical confrontational with the officers on scene.

A short struggle ensued where the man was taken to ground and safely apprehended under the Mental Health Act of BC.

The investigation is concluded at this time. File 2021-1680 refers.
