Man left a trail of blood throughout downtown Kennewick before being tased
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Downtown Kennewick was the scene of a bloody incident Saturday night.
Police say 29-year-old Troy Hallman was leaving the "Sports Page" bar, when he punched a glass window at 124 West Kennewick Avenue. The CAT team also responded to the scene.
Police say Hallman had a serious injury in his arm and lost a lot of blood after breaking the window. When he was approached by police he refused help and officers had to tase him.
Police say they were directed to the scene by onlookers who were concerned for the man's safety. Police were able to assist before medics arrived.
"With an injury of that nature he would have bled to death in a matter of minutes, regardless of his demeanor we still have a responsibility to take care of and to preserve life," said Corporal Todd Dronen, with the Kennewick Police Department.
On the street on Sunday, there was a long trail of blood on the sidewalk. Police say once medics arrived Hallman was also threatening them.
They finally took him to Lourdes Medical Center. Hallman was charged with Malicious Mischief and Resisting Arrest. Police say he also had an outstanding warrant.
