    Man stabs himself repeatedly, gets naked, damages a patrol car, and gets tazed...

    Here is a pic of the damaged patrol car:


    HOPEWELL JUNCTION A Poughkeepsie man stabbed himself, stripped naked and smashed an East Fishkill patrol car repeatedly in a rage early Monday morning before officers subdued him, East Fishkill police said.

    Scott Belton, 34, began his confrontation with police about 2:55 a.m. His girlfriend had called 911 and Belton met the first officer outside the Martin Road home while brandishing a butcher knife, Sgt. Corey Ehrhart said.

    A second unit arrived, and officers Ken Knapp and Paul Gaston tried to calm Belton down as he argued with his girlfriend and stabbed himself with the butcher knife, Ehrhart said. They also called for back-up from state police and the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.

    After police separated Belton from his girlfriend, Belton took his clothes off, allegedly grabbed a baseball bat and a "club" anti-theft device and started smashing the windshield, hood, both headlights, spotlight and grill of an East Fishkill patrol car. He took the butcher knife and started stabbing the hood of the patrol car, Ehrhart said.

    Taser deployed

    As Belton continued his rage, officers from the three agencies kept him at gunpoint as they awaited the arrival of a sheriff's deputy with a Taser stun device. Once there, Deputy Joel Petrus shocked Belton, knocking him onto the side of the heavily damaged patrol car and ending the confrontation after some 30 minutes.

    "Every officer there showed a tremendous amount of restraint and patience," Ehrhart said, noting Belton tested the limits with officers several times as he approached them with the knife and bat. The use of the Taser, he said, is "probably what kept him from getting killed."

    Belton was brought by East Fishkill Rescue Squad to Saint Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie, where he remained Monday morning.

    Police anticipate charging Belton with felony criminal mischief, among several other charges.

    The damaged patrol car was towed from the scene and brought to a repair shop. Police estimated the car sustained more than $5,800 in damage.

    All in all, not a good day to be a bad guy.

    I dont understand this part? the taser was deployed and then they had to wait more for the arrival of another taser?

    ""Every officer there showed a tremendous amount of restraint and patience," Ehrhart said, noting Belton tested the limits with officers several times as he approached them with the knife and bat. "

    approach me once... ok then back off.. do it again... your done. Patience my butt... eh.. thats just me

    Another successful taser story. That man should consider himself lucky to be alive after all the bullshit moves he pulled.

    I agree with goz. I'm pretty sure I would have dropped him.

    I think they used "Taser Deployed" to begin with as an intro to the next paragraph, kind of a preview of what they were about to tell you. Like people would be too lazy to read the next couple of sentences, or something. Cheap reporter trick, basically.
