As reported by WLTX - Columbia police were called out to the Colony Apartments Wednesday morning to talk a man out of killing himself. When he wouldn't comply with negotiators, officials say they tased him.
Authorities say that man, Leroy Davis, had been involved in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend the night before, so they were looking for him this morning.
Just before 11 a.m., a patrol officer spotted him but says Davis would not stop his car. They officers said Davis obeyed all traffic laws as he made his way to the Colony Apartments off Beltline Boulevard.
Police say the man then got out of the car and put a knife to his own throat, threatening to hurt himself. Richland County deputies were called out to assist in negotiating with Davis, but after two hours police say he started to move away from the perimeter of officials. "We were afraid he was going to try to hurt himself," a police spokesman says. Read More HERE
