"If you can bring both. I think he's definitely gonna need to be hospitalized. I wouldn't just do the police by itself," the caller is heard saying.

The dispatcher replies: "Sir if you could just keep an eye on him. ...Don't let him get any weapons or anything. If anything changes, if he does become physically combative between now and the police or paramedics getting there, give us a call back at 911."
