The man's statement taken immediately prior to his being handcuffed was "Tzzzzzzzztt!".

Glad to see the LPD exercising restraint and not just shooting him which is apparently what he wanted.

As they were loading him into the ambulance, he told the medics "I wanted to die", as well as "life sucks"..
