Deland, FL - Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood successfully pulled a knife away from a suicidal man Thursday evening after leading authorities on a low-speed chase through DeLand. Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about a man threatening to kill himself in DeLand with active warrants for his arrest. DeLand police and Volusia County deputies found the man in his truck, but he fled, the Sheriff’s Office. Chitwood was in the area after leaving the Volusia County Fair, and was contacted by the man’s mother while authorities were attempting to stop the truck. The sheriff was able to call the man and get him to stop, according to the report. Even after stopping the truck, the man, who had cut himself with a box cutter, was threatening to cut his throat and refused to surrender, deputies said. Video of the incident shows the slow chase and the two-hour standoff.

    • @skyhawk53 Yeah,he was a wimp but its also contradictive from police officers to hurt someone when they are supposed to "Save" him,might as well have left him die,one criminal less.

      Your point is not so farfetched. I think many would agree with you on that.

    • @skyhawk53 Of corse, "Saving " these pityfull people is just a waste of energy,money and resources. I still fail to understand why police bothers to keep the bad guys alive when they can just let them die.

      Yes, I understand you.
      I have taken a lot of heat in the past when my comments have suggested certain criminals, such as felons attempting to flee, or who have tried to injure citizens or police officers, do not deserve to receive medical treatment. They have made their bed, now let them lay in it. Let them bleed out while they see their whole crappy life pass before their eyed...lol.

    • @skyhawk53 I know,even in Germany im being called a "Nazi" or "Hiler incarnate" for such comments,but well, its Human stupidity.
      Most humans just dont want to accept the concept of Death as normal.

      It reminds me of Batman letting the Joker alive despite being a mad man and a killer. Same with crmininals, they want to keep them alive instead of letting them die, our world would be beter off without them but instead we keep them locked in cells while they are draining on o More..
