Police Taser man to end standoff in W. Houston

HOUSTON - A man was taken into custody for a mental health evaluation following a brief standoff in west Houston.

According to Houston Police, officers were called to 1400 Confederate Street around midnight Tuesday. When they arrived, police found a man threatening his mom and himself.

Officers used a Taser to take the man into custody without serious injury, but they say he suffered a self-inflicted cut. The suspect was taken to the hospital to be treated.

Officers say they used an abundance of caution, waiting about an hour before using the Taser on the man.
