Three of us responded to an unknown trouble radio call. We found a male quite upset. He tells us that his wife is "a little off" and is around the corner with a weapon. We get to the carport next door and find a woman with a fireplace poker and 4 steak knives taped to the end of it. She is jabbing at nothing and talking to herself. Probably could have killed or at least tasered the suspect. Instead we talked her down. Quite a bit of ribbing from the troops, but better to negotiate for 5 minutes than shoot her I suppose.
