Sheriff’s bean bag shotgun halts sword attack

A sword-wielding 33-year-old Rancho Cucamonga man charged deputies while hollering “Allah Akbar,” sheriff’s officials say, until the deputies halted him with a blast from a bean bag shotgun.

Montasir Ishag was arrested at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, along the 9400 block of Glenaire Court and booked for investigation of attempted murder of a police officer, jail records show. His bail is $1 million.

Deputies were summoned to the house at 1:26 p.m. by a caller who said his son was under the influence of meth and was having a bi-polar episode, sheriff’s officials said in a written statement.
The caller also said his son had a sword in his bedroom and feared for his safety.

  1. Did they forget the high brass 00 buckshot?

  2. Well .....that's different . Hat tip to the LEO's who chose not to use deadly force on an obviously demented man. W. Russell

    1. Agreed, since he would have had a perfect right to shoot him and depending on the man and the drugs inside, it could have turned out badly for the LEO, though I imagine if the culprit had kept coming, they would have shot him. He's probably pissed off, since he's not with his 72 virgins now..........
