Neighbors called 911 when they spotted Robert Lopez, 37, outside with no clothes on drinking beer.

When deputies arrived, they told Lopez he needed to get dressed. The police report says Lopez then got angry, swore at the deputy and threw a beer bottle. Lopez then threatened to get a gun and shoot him.

The deputy then called for backup and grabbed the rifle from his car. Lopez then put on a pair of shorts and went inside his house.

A short time later, Lopez came back outside holding a knife with an 8-inch blade. The deputy ordered Lopez to drop the knife or else he would be shot.

Lopez then threw the knife at the deputy, but it missed. A second deputy, no on scene, then shot Lopez in the stomach with a bean-bag round from his less than lethal shotgun. Lopez fell to the ground and was taken into custody.

Lopez now faces felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, resisting arrest and a misdemeanor for indecent exposure.
