NOW: “I’ll take another one out:“ Kenosha police crash into suspect to disarm him after threats

KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- At midnight early Wednesday morning Kenosha Police responded to the intersection of 56th Street and 58th Avenue after getting 911 calls from a man saying things like “I’ll take another one out” and “One wasn’t good enough, one down, one to go.” The man also called numerous times to announce a "countdown timer."

After looking through records, police determined an identity of the man and discovered prior mental health and weapon calls involving him.

Once officers arrived they found the man near a fenced dumpster enclosure holding a box cutter and knife in his hands. 

The man moved towards officers multiple times but officers retreated in response. The suspect did not respond to conversation and refused commands to drop the knives. 

As the suspect was approaching a Sergeant the officer used his car to hit the man at a low rate of speed knocking him to the ground and disarming him. The man was then arrested.

Officers believe the man was under the influence of prescription medication and alcohol. The suspect suffered minor injuries. No one else was injured.
