BEND, OR -- Bend Police managed to prevent a domestic dispute from escalating into a "suicide by cop" incident. Officers stopped 36-year-old Christopher Nolan near NE 6th Street, after he allegedly fled a domestic dispute. 

 

When officers tried to arrest Nolan for violating parole, he reached into his car, grabbed a large knife and started cutting his wrists and neck as he walked into orchard park.
 
Nolan repeatedly yelled explatives at officers and told them to shoot him. The exchange was caught on video by a bystander. On the video, officers can be heard repeatedly yelling, "Chris! Get down on the ground!" While a woman looked on saying, "My son has gone crazy." Officers eventually were able to taser him.
 
Nolan was taken to St Charles, where his injuries were determined to be non-life threatening. Nolan is charged with menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and parole violation.
