BEND, OR -- A 28-year-old Bend man faces charges after allegedly throwing a knife toward officers. Bend Police responded to Butler Market and Wells Acres Monday morning after witnesses reported a man in a bathrobe was acting like he was throwing a knife at passing cars.
When officers contacted Gabriel Richards on Wells Acres, authorities say he was uncooperative and threw the knife. Officers negotiated Richards into custody without further incident and he was taken to the hospital for evaluation. He's charged with Menacing and Disorderly Conduct.
