Attempt Suicide / Mental Evaluation
May 13 at 9:29 p.m., a female subject came to the police department lobby to report her ex-husband had stated that he was going to commit suicide.  He had grabbed the garden hose and left the location in his truck, which has a camper shell.  When his son called him, he stated that he was going to park somewhere, connect the hose to the exhaust pipe, and die of carbon monoxide poisoning.  The ex-wife had driven around searching for the ex-husband, but when she was unable to find him, she came to the police station.  The father refused to tell his son where he was parked. 
Police dispatchers where able to locate the vehicle by using the cell phone and discovered the vehicle was parked in a parking lot in the 400 block of East Foothill.  Officers arrived and located the vehicle with the hose attached to the tailpipe, leading into the camper shell.  The officers opened the rear hatch and smelled a strong odor of carbon monoxide.  The subject was lying in the bed of the truck, lethargic.  Paramedics responded and took the subject to a hospital for treatment, where he was held for 72-hour mental evaluation.
