Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sends a Swat Team to Handle a Mentally Ill Subject at the World's Largest Gift Store in Las Vegas
LVMPD Needed 50 Cops, 4 Departments and a Special Weapons Attack Team to Apprehend One Disturbed, Naked Woman in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NV: Bonanza Gift Shop is a landmark located on the Las Vegas Strip between the SLS Las Vegas and the Stratosphere Las Vegas. It is billed as the World's Largest Gift Shop with over 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2) of shopping space.
A woman was seen causing a disturbance inside the store. She stripped off her clothes and started acting erratically. Allegedly, she picked up a butcher knife. Because she had a weapon, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Plice Department called their S.W.A.T. to handle this subject.
Yes, you read that correctly. S.W.A.T. was called in to handle ONE naked woman with a knife.
The Bonanza Gift Store was evacuated and that area of the strip was CLOSED for hours due to police activity.
Does this seem like an excessive use of force for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to use a S.W.A.T. to apprehend one naked woman who was allegedly only holding a knife?
