Police were able to get their hands on a sandwich from a nearby hotel in hopes that it would convince the man to reconsider. After showing him the food, he eventually gave in. The man was able to eat the sandwich and shortly after was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

According to reports, police say they may file criminal charges against the man relating to acts of vandalism on the parking structure and surrounding vehicles.
