A young man with mental health issues at a home on Northwest 60th became uncontrollable this evening, scaring his parents and giving a local cable TV technician more than a bad time.
Arriving Newport Police officers tangled seriously with the man and called over the radio for more help.
A fast response by an array of Sheriff and OSP officers quickly had things back under control.
They were last seen transporting the now subdued man to the county jail. Officers say he’s acting better but officers still radioed ahead to have extra help ready at the intake Sally port just in case.
