Whitehall police arrested a 50-year-old man for obstructing official business at 6:25 p.m. Feb. 28 at his residence on the 4400 block of Saint Ann Lane.

Officers responded to a report of a man who had stabbed himself before running from the residence.

Officers reportedly observed the man, who was bleeding, walking west on Saint Ann Lane, then north on Santa Maria Lane.

When officers approached the man, he allegedly rushed toward them and attempted to assault one of them. Police used an electroshock weapon to subdue and apprehend the man, according to reports.
