At 3:53 p.m. on Monday, Delphos Police received a call to the 300 block of North Jefferson Street in reference to a subject wanting to harm himself at that location.
A short time later, officers arrived on scene and attempted to make contact with Glenn Feathers, 50, of Delphos, who was locked inside his residence. After several attempts to speak with Feathers both through the locked door and over the telephone, Feathers continued to threaten harm to himself.
Officers used a battering ram to gain entrance into the locked residence at which time Feathers continued to fail to comply with officers and their commands. After several minutes, Feathers actions towards officers resulted in them using a Taser on him to gain control.
Feathers was transported to a facility in Lima for evaluation.
The case was presented to the Van Wert Municipal Court Prosecutor’s Office, at which time charges of obstructing official business were approved.
