At 1336 hours a subject experiencing a crisis event smashed the window out of his third-floor apartment and began tossing large objects out onto the street and sidewalk below. The subject rejected all communication efforts with police and continued to throw objects out of the window as officers were on-scene. A warrant was obtained to enter the apartment and arrest the subject for Reckless Endangerment, as well as an outstanding ITA warrant. HNT responded to the scene to assist, but after eight hours of attempting to gain compliance from the subject it proved to be unproductive. Throughout the incident the subject repeatedly hung out of the broken window and threatened to jump headfirst if officers entered his apartment. After exhausting all available avenues to take the subject into custody peacefully it was determined that there was no feasible means of arresting the subject without risking serious physical injury to him. The scene below the apartment was thoroughly marked to indicate that pedestrians could not use the sidewalk and SDOT provided traffic control devices to divert vehicles away from the apartment. The scene was then cleared and staff at the apartment building were advised to call 9-1-1 if the subject re-escalated.
