Craig Cobb Taken to State Hospital for Evaluation

Posted:
Stanton, ND -

White Supremacist Craig Cobb is on his way to the state hospital for an evaluation.

That's according to Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danzeisen.

Cobb has not eaten since he came to the jail -- which has been nine days.

Sheriff Danzeisen says Cobb was taken to a clinic in Beulah today to be evaluated and medical professionals there referred Cobb to the state hospital.

Danzeisen says Cobb has been treated like every other inmate and given three meals a day.

However, Cobb has refused to eat as a form of spiritual enlightenment that ends in death.

"It's entirely up to him if he doesn't want to eat. Until the point he becomes too weak we have to take him to the hospital. He did request fluids, he was given those on his own because that's exactly what he wants. Reporter: "Do you think this could be a ploy to get more attention?" "I don't know what exactly he's doing. He's had visitors just like everybody else," says Sheriff Dean Danzeisen.

Sheriff Danzeisen says he's had no other problems with Cobb or Kynan Dutton.

The men are charged in Grant County with terrorizing and are being held in the Mercer County jail on no bond.
