MANATEE -- A 32-year-old man was hit by a sheriff's deputy's Taser and arrested after he threatened two people, and himself, with knives, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Keith Van Der Wiele was at a residence in The Gardens Mobile Home Park in Parrish about 2:33 a.m. today, when he got into argument with two people, ages 48 and 66, he had been drinking with, according to a news release.
"At some point, Keith went into the kitchen and armed himself with two 8-inch knives," the news release states. "Keith returned to the porch and threatened the victims with the knives."
The victims called 911, and when deputies arrive, Van De Wiele grabbed a knife and began "making suicidal threats," according to the report.
