Albion Armed Stand-Off Ends When Assailant is Doused by Fire Hose & Taken Down by K9

At some point during the six hour standoff, Mendocino County Sheriff Matt Kendall said the suspect had doused himself with gasoline and was holding a lighter while sitting in the cabin of the vehicle. Sheriff Kendall said the flammable subject kept officers from using tear gas or other gas agents used in stand off situations due to the incendiary properties of the devices. Eventually though an Albion Volunteer firefighter on scene reportedly sprayed the subject with a fire hose.
