  17. subject. Deputy Cichosz is standing directly behind Hazelton. Hazelton and Cichosz repeatedly shoutcommands for the subject to show his hands. The subject does not comply or acknowledge the deputies.As they continued to shout commands, a vehicle drove onto the bridge from the north end and stoppednear the subject. The vehicle headlights were pointed at Hazelton and Cichosz, hindering their vision. Thedriver, Chad Westby, exited the vehicle as Hazelton and Cichosz shouted commands for the driver to getinto his vehicle and leave the area. The driver complied and the vehicle drove south past the deputies. Thevehicle was eventually stopped by other officers and Westby was detained and ultimately arrested.Hazelton and Cichosz continued to focus on the subject and shout verbal commands for the subject toshow his hands. Hazelton observed the subject was reaching into his jacket pocket and pulled out ahandgun. Cichosz confirmed it was a gun and that information was broadcast to the officers at the scene.Hazelton and Cichosz advised the assisting officers not to position themselves on the immediate north endof the bridge to avoid a cross-fire situation and to shut down Bridge Street to traffic.The subject was holding the gun in his right hand and was placing it directly under his chin pointing theend upwards. The subject was also placing the gun against this temple and placing it inside his mouth.

Cichosz is a K-9 handler and works from 5:00 PM to 3:00 AM and his call number is518. 9-14-11 was his first day back at work, however he and his K-9 had been requested on 9-13-11 to assistin the search for Chase KOLSTAD, who was reported as a suicidal male with a gun. Cichosz was not able tosearch for KOLSTAD at that time.Cichosz was working in a fully marked SUV in full uniform when dispatch advised him to call in. Dispatchadvised Cichosz that KOLSTAD was in the Minnesota City area. KOLSTAD was reported to be suicidaland in possession of a gun and a scanner. Cichosz was also told KOLSTAD had made death threats to lawenforcement and others.Cichosz proceeded to Minnesota City and met up with other deputies on the south highway 61/BridgeStreet exit. Deputies Hazelton and Hansen were coming back to the squads from the north. As Cichoszarrived, GVPD Volkman radioed he spotted a subject in the park. WPD Sgt Allen called by cell phone andadvised the observed subject could also be Chad Westby who may be with KOLSTAD.Volkman advised the subject was moving towards the bridge. Deputy Cichosz and Deputy Hazelton tookCichosz’s squad and proceeded on Bridge Street, north, to the park. As they got closer to the park, Cichoszturned on his squad headlights and spot light.As they neared the south end of the bridge, Cichosz and Hazelton spotted a subject about half-way downthe bridge, on the west side outer ledge. Cichosz parked at the south end, west side and he and Hazeltontook cover at the end of the bridge, about 30-40 yards from the subject.

The subject did notrespond.As Deputy Hazelton continued to give commands to the subject, Cichosz saw a gun in the subject’s righthand. Cichosz explained the subject was gripping the weapon like a gun and at one point held it up underhis chin with both hands and Cichosz thought he was going to shoot himself.Cichosz said as the subject waved the weapon around, it flashed in the light and Cichosz described it as achrome handgun. Cichosz said he could see the subject holding the grip of the weapon with the shiny metalbarrel perpendicular to the grip and pointed outwards, parallel with the subject’s arm.As Cichosz and Hazelton continued to shout commands, a truck approached from the north, with itsheadlights shining at Cichosz and Hazelton making it difficult for the deputies to see and illuminating them,putting them at a tactical disadvantage. Cichosz said the truck stopped where the subject was and thedriver exited. Cichosz recognized the driver as Chad Westby. Cichosz said as Westby approached thesubject, it seemed to agitate the subject. Westby was ordered to get back in the truck and leave the area.Westby left the bridge and was detained by other officers.Deputy Cichosz noticed that Officer Volkman and Deputy Brand had now joined him and Hazelton, takingcover behind a large rock behind them.Cichosz said Hazelton remained on target with the subject as Cichosz gave commands to drop the gun.Hazelton also continued to give commands to drop the gun, adding “it can’t be that bad.” Cichosz said the
