Bi-polar family member with anger/drinking issues, history of domestic abuse. Bankrupt and unemployed, not receiving any benefits. Recently arrested for domestic disturbance including malicious destruction of property, assault, resisting arrest, possession of knives, but bailed out by daughter. Obsessive behavior/revenge fantasies, owing to wife's infidelity. Experienced breakdown two years ago, in denial about extent of illness.
Family wants him in extended in-patient mental health program, but subject claims he is opening motorcycle business, thus will not go voluntarily. Concern that DA will press for more jail time next week, yet mental illness is the main issue. Family feels business dealings are manic delusions or blue sky, he needs therapy. Deemed competent to stand trial.
