Officers Used Restraint - Suicide By Cop Suspect


Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody has released video showing several of his deputies responding to a woman who threatened suicide by cop on May 19 and demonstrated “extreme restraint and professionalism” in handling the situation.

According to Sheriff Chody, the deputies responded to the call and began to talk to the woman, who is in her 50s, who eventually exited her home with a suicide note in one hand and a gun in the other. The video shows the patrol cars parked along the street but the deputies are out of view.

Upon seeing the gun, deputies, who can be heard on the video saying “We don’t want to hurt her,” began issuing verbal commands that she ignored several times. “Deputies were forced to put themselves in danger and use non-lethal force on the woman,” Chody’s memo states.
