Police Use Lollipops To Disarm Mentally Disturbed Giant

April 23, 2011

A Macon police officer calmed an agitated mentally disturbed man using a handful of lollipops, Macon.com reports.

A supervisor from the River Edge mental health facility reported the 38-year-old man, described as standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighing more than 350 pounds, became violent while the mental health worker was checking on him.

When an officer tried to assist the health worker, the patient struck the officer in the left hand with a broom and started to threaten with a razor.

Patient became even more agitated when he saw an officer approaching with a taser, but luckily his associate retrieved a handful of lollipops from his patrol car and convinced the patient to trade the lollipops for the razor and to allow officers to handcuff him.
