37 Year old Utah man holds police at bay with knife advising them they will have to shoot him to take him into custody on Utah Felony Warrant

On  10/03/2018 at about 10:45 PM Astoria Police were contacted by an Astoria Port Security Officer advising that he had just had contact with a man who said he was wanted but if the police tried to arrest him it would end in a standoff.  An Astoria Officer arrived to make contact with the man near West Marine and Bay Street.  The man, later identified as 37 Year old Michael Douglas Hathaway reportedly concealed an object and refused to stop for the officer.  Hathaway then produced a dirk style knife and told the officer, he would have to shoot Hathaway to take him into custody.  Additional Officers from Astoria Police Department responded to assist with the apprehension of Hathaway who was given repeated commands, which were repeatedly refused, to drop the knife.  Officers continued to speak with Hathaway who after several minutes of negotiation, dropped the knife and allowed himself to be handcuffed.  Hathaway was initially transported to Columbia Memorial Hospital after telling officers he had just ingested heroin prior to being contacted by police.  Hathaway was treated, then lodged at the Clatsop County Jail on the Utah Felony Warrant, as well as on local charges of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Felon in Possession of a Restricted Weapon.
