"When we arrived, we found the suspect on the front porch with his wrists cut and knives taped in both hands. He told us he had been taking drugs all night and was going to take his own life. When he turned to yell at his neighbor I was able to discharge my TASER X26 ECD. The suspect was completely incapacitated and went to the ground. Officers were able to gain control of both arms before the end of the five-second cycle. This subject may have bled to death if we were not able to use the TASER X26 to get him under control quickly."
