Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently walked in on a man attempting to strangle himself in his bathroom on Pace Dr.

When a deputy arrived, the man was in the bathroom talking to himself. The deputy then reported hearing the man choking and kicked the door in. The man had tied rope around his neck and to a door handle and he started fighting the officer trying to untie the rope from the door.

The deputy then tried to release the rope from the man’s neck, he used his knife to cut the rope at one point, but the man struggled so much, the knife became a threat to the man. Eventually, the deputy was able to remove the rope with his hands.

The man then fought against the deputy and EMS trying to get him to go to a hospital. He attempted to run and hide from authorities, but they handcuffed him and placed him inside a sheriff’s office vehicle. Deputies transported the man to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center.
