33-year-old Ian Brockway was jailed Tuesday night after his girlfriend reported that he wanted to kill himself due to their breakup. Ms. Thomas advised the police that Brockway had left the house with a knife. Police noted that they had multiple units looking for Brockway, but he was nowhere to be found. During the search, Brockway was still sending Ms. Thomas text messages about harming himself. He was finally found on the other side of a fence behind the residence. He was extremely intoxicated and refused to prove that he didn’t have any weapons by continuing to walk away toward the house. As officers attempted to place Brockway into cuffs, he pulled away until he was finally cuffed and walked to the patrol car, where he spat on Officer Edmund. While in booking, he told Officer Edmund that he would “find out where he lived and beat his ass.”
