Florida law permits a mental health professional, law enforcement officer, or judge who issues an ex parte order to initiate an involuntary examination only when a person meets the following criteria:
If there is reason to believe that he or she is mentally ill and because of his or her mental illness:
(a) 1. The person has refused voluntary examination after conscientious explanation and (a) disclosure of the purpose of the examination; or
(a) 2. The person is unable to determine for himself or herself whether the examination is (a) necessary; and
(b) 1. Without care or treatment, the person is likely to suffer from neglect or refuse to care for himself or herself; such neglect or refusal poses a real and present threat of substantial harm to his or her well-being; and it is not apparent that such harm may be avoided through the help of willing family members or friends or the provision of other services; or
(a) 2. There is a substantial likelihood that without care or treatment the person will cause serious bodily harm to himself or herself or others in the near future, as evidenced by recent behavior.

That must have been some tough 92 year old if they couldn't find another way to take him down. Those old geezers can be nasty.
