Authorities say 33-year-old Jonathan Whitehead stopped and set fire to his truck on the Ship Canal Bridge and was spray painting a green circle on the pavement when he was confronted by troopers and charged at them with a knife.
The man’s mother, Donna Buchenau, told KIRO the green circle was a “circle of truth” he thought would protect him.
