Highway 101 shut down while deputies chase suspect

Highway 101 just north of Patterson Avenue in Goleta was shut down for about 35 minutes on Wednesday, while Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies chased a man who they say threatened officers with a knife.

At around 1:30 pm, Sheriff's officials say a man called dispatchers from a business on Calle Real, made threatening comments and hung up. When a deputy responded to the area, they say the man held out a knife and talked about hurting officers. He then walked across Highway 101.

Deputies fired bean bags at the man and used a stun gun in order to take him into custody. He was taken to the hospital to be checked out and will be booked into County Jail.
