Sheriff: Man detained for evaluation after making threats

A 37-year-old man who “stated he would provoke officers in hopes of shooting him” was detained by deputies shortly after 1 p.m. Friday after family members called authorities to report his statements, Lieutenant Johnny Rose stated. Deputies responded to the area around the intersection of Little Road and Meander Road a few miles north of Granbury, made contact with the man and detained him for a mental evaluation with MHMR, Rose said. No one was injured, he added.
