A California Highway Patrol officer firing bean bags from a shotgun stopped a man from continuing to cut his own neck on Thursday in Brooks.

According to the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department, at about 8:15 p.m. a deputy approached a man at the Brooks Mini Mart. The man took from his truck a three-inch folding knife and held it up to his neck.

The man refused to drop the knife and began backing away from the deputy. Cache Creek Casino security, California Highway Patrol offers and other sheriff’s deputies soon arrived at the scene.

The man cut his neck “numerous times,” a news release said. He finally went down to the ground as ordered after being pelted with “several” bean bag rounds, the release said.

The man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he was placed on a mental health hold and remains in stable condition.
