In June last year, armed police officers responded to a report that a man, who had tried to force his way into a property in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, was in possession of weapons. The man later barricaded himself in a bedroom at his own home, telling  police he had a gun and threatening to fire a crossbow at them. He also brandished a piece of metal, threw glass and other objects at officers, threatened to self-harm and cut his wrist with a fragment of glass. In addition, he tried to stab one officer with a piece of glass. Following a stand-off, police officers Tasered the suspect; he was subsequently treated in hospital for effects of the stun gun. The man was later handed a drug treatment and testing order.
