DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
A25-year-old Woodside military veteranwas sane at the time he allegedly assaultedhis cousin with a shovel and grabbed for aresponding sheriff deputy’s gun, accordingto court-appointed doctors.If convicted, Milo McIntosh Imrie willthen have a sanity trial with the same jurors weighing his guilt on the assaultcharges. The doctors’sanity conclusionswill be admitted as evidence in that phasefor jurorsconsideration. Anot guilty byreason of insanity conclusion means Imriewill be committed to a state mental hospi-tal rather than incarcerated. Imrie alreadyspent one stretch at Napa State Hospitallast year after being found incompetent tostand trial but doctors there returned himto San Mateo County inAugust after deeming hismental state restored.Prosecutors say Imrieis thought to have post-traumatic stress disorder.Imrie was arrested Dec.12, 2012, after allegedlythreatening his 22-year-old cousin with a gaso-line can and claims heplanned to kill him and himself througheither fire or the use of a knife. The cousintook a butcher block of knives from thekitchen and threw it on the roof but, whenhis back was turned, Imrie struck him inthe back with the shovel and fled, accord-ing to prosecutors.Deputies found Imrie at the nearbyMenlo Country Club on Woodside Roadwhere he reportedly resisted arrest andtried grabbing the gun. He was placed on apsychiatric hold but, while being trans-ported to jail the next day, he ran from thepatrol car when its door was open.Before he could be tried, Imrie’s defenseattorney questioned his competency.Competency is a person’s ability to aidin one’s own defense while sanity is his orher mental state at the time of an allegedcrime. Imrie is free from custody on $25,000cash bail.
