MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS STANDOFF

(Washington County Sheriff's Office)

WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - A man was arrested after pointing a BB gun at a deputy Tuesday morning.

A Washington County deputy responded to a call near the 8500 block of SW Oleson Road regarding a male who was making gun gestures at passing vehicles around 9:31 a.m.

Once the deputy arrived, he confronted the suspect, identified as 34-year-old Daniel Bean, of Portland.

Deputies said Bean pointed a rifle at the deputy and retreated into his home.

Deputies were later able to determine the rifle Bean pointed at the deputy was a BB gun, according to deputies.

Several deputies arrived to assist, including members of the inter-agency Washington County Tactical Negotiation Team, Robot Team, and Crisis Negotiation Unit.

Deputies attempted to communicate with Bean who appeared to be having a mental health crisis.

After more than two hours, Bean was taken into custody without incident and was lodged in the Washington County jail on charges of menacing and second-degree disorderly conduct.

While in jail, Bean’s mental health will be evaluated and he will be offered mental health resources, according to deputies.

Just curious

The statement states: "The person was taken into custody without and lodged into County jail".

What was he without?

There seems to be a missing word or words.

Probably"without incidence".was unintentionally omitted, but it does give a reader to ponder what i the "without"?
