Imagine Brian, a young man, 17-year-old with autism who is 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, and nonverbal. He escaped from his home while his mother was taking a shower and wandered into an adjacent neighborhood. He is lost and is walking through people’s front yards when someone calls the police. The officers ask Brian his name, where he lives, and what is going on. Brian is agitated and starts biting his arm. The officers decide to handcuff Brian, who becomes combative and must be wrestled to the ground and then put in the back of the police car and taken to the police station.
