Salt Lake Police told KSL NewsRadio a UHP Trooper detained the suspect on the scene. Police determined the man was having a mental health crisis when he used a rock to shatter the glass.
The suspect was involuntarily committed for a psychiatric evaluation. The Salt Lake District Attorney’s office will screen for potential charges after the evaluation.
