Previous arrest reveals drug usage and paranoia by sword-wielding robbery suspect
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A police report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reveals details of a previous brush with the law by the sword-wielding robbery suspect that was shot and killed by a Dairy Queen employee on Sunday.
According to the report, an officer with LVMPD responded to a domestic-violence call at a residence on Crimson Rose Avenue shared by Bongkuk Pak and his wife on June 13, 2010.
Pak's wife told the police officer that Pak had been smoking methamphetamine and was verbally abusive.
The couple also briefly fought when Pak tried to leave their house.
Pak's wife gave the responding officer a bag with crystal-like substance. Pak admitted to the officer that it was his "meth." Pak told the officer that he only smoked a small amount each morning to give him a burst of energy "like a cup of coffee."
Pak accused the police officer of being a part of a group that was watching him and said that his house was bugged. He also accused his wife of hiring the CIA and Las Vegas police to put listening devices on his home phone.
Pak also described covering his rear-view mirrors with black tape so that no one could see him and taking his vehicles apart due to "stress."
Pak also told the police officer that his wife was smoke his meth and their two-year-old daughter was not theirs.
Pak was arrested at that time for possession of methamphetamine and domestic battery.
Pak attempted to rob a local Dairy Queen, near Maryland Parkway and Sahara Avenue, on Sunday. He entered the store wearing a mask and carrying a sword.
He was shot by one of the employees in the store.
Las Vegas police have also arrested Carol Mateo. Police say that she checked out the business before Pak entered with his sword.
The district attorney will decide if any charges are to be filed against the employee for shooting Pak. The owner of the store says that the shooting was in self defense.
