J. Pagan finds the trial court properly committed an individual because she had a mental illness that caused her to be a danger to others. The individual had “homicidal ideations” toward a journalist and drove to his home with a maul and pepper spray. “That sequence of behavior in the context of appellant’s increasing symptoms of depression and PTSD, and her reluctance to take her prescribed psychiatric medications on an outpatient basis, is clear evidence that she was highly likely to engage in future violence toward others if not involuntarily committed.” Affirmed.
