Man with mental issues delays BNSF train in Richmond Beach

Friday, February 24, 2017

Thursday about 4:45pm BNSF railroad contacted the King County Sheriff's Office to assist with a man who was creating a disturbance with a train in Richmond Beach.

The man had asked train personnel for a ride on the train. When they declined, he got on a car anyway. When BNSF security and Shoreline Police responded, he began throwing rocks at them.

As it appeared to be a mental health crisis, Shoreline Fire was called in. He was safely taken into custody without injury to anyone. Fire took him to the hospital for involuntary commitment and evaluation.

The train was delayed during the incident but resumed its scheduled run.

I'm not sure about about the no harm to anyone. He fell off a little ledge and face planted in the sand.
