Texas man jailed for breaking medic’s hand
A medic will be in a cast for four weeks after a struggle with a patient
AUSTIN, Texas — A paramedic will have to wear a cast on his hand for a week, and a patient is in jail for breaking it.
Police arrested Crecensio Perez for assault on a public servant after he allegedly attacked a paramedic, KXAN reports.
The medic responded to a call about a suspect in the roadway, and Perez became aggressive as he approached. In a struggle, Perez fell onto the medic’s hand, breaking it in several places.
The medic told police he tried to help Perez because he thought he was a danger to himself since he was close to the highway.
