1/9/2016: Police received reports of a minivan that struck a utility pole around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, police said. Officers arrived on the scene and spotted Kent in the minivan, but when they tried to stop him, he reportedly attempted to strike their patrol car. Kent then drove off and stopped his car and reportedly threatened law enforcement with a chainsaw. A Taser was used to subdue the suspect, but when that didn’t work Cowlitz County Sheriff's deputies Brent Harris and Alexis Tonissen and Kelso Police Officer Darrel Stair shot and killed him. http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2016/01/man_who_threatened_police_with.html
