SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A homeless man who police say stabbed himself in front of officers will likely go behind bars soon.
Santa Fe Police say several people called them about Nazareth Jiron who was threatening people with a knife.
Police said he was confrontational when they caught up with him, so they tased him and shot beanbag rounds at him.
He then stabbed himself with a knife and was taken to an Albuquerque hospital.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Jiron has a history of struggling with homelessness and mental illness and has been arrested several times for similar offenses.
