Police Tase patient who punches officer on ambulance

Police were asked to ride along with medics to help restrain him; he was arrested and hospital staff later had to intubate him

By EMS1 Staff

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — Police Tased and arrested a man who punched an officer inside an ambulance on Wednesday.

Corey J. Hayslett faces a charge of assault of a peace officer after police were asked to ride along with medics to help restrain him, WHIO reports. Hayslett was impaired from drugs and alcohol according to the police report.

During the transport, he allegedly threatened officers, and was able to break away and punch one with a closed fist. The officer then used a Taser, and both probes struck Hayslett’s right upper back, subduing him.

He was taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center, where he was so combative that staff there “had to put Mr. Hayslett to sleep to intubate him.”

KrisAnn Sisk KrisAnn Sisk Wednesday, July 09, 2014 2:27:45 AM Can I please read an article with proper grammar used on here. I believe they meant police officer...
Aaron Zevgolis Aaron Zevgolis Wednesday, July 09, 2014 3:36:35 AM I fail to see where the grammar was so bad here. Also where did they need to use "police officer", maybe you mean where it says "assault on a peace officer", which is probably how the law is written. In may states laws contain the word "peace officer" which includes both police officers and sheriff's deputies.
KrisAnn Sisk KrisAnn Sisk Wednesday, July 09, 2014 5:07:57 AM Good to know Aaron but I read these articles and it happens a lot. I've always believed that printed news should be held to a higher standard. If I read something and the grammar is butchered, which I have scene in articles, it makes you question the validity and if the editor is actually doing their job. Thanks though. I was just stating it gets old. Thanks for taking the time to have an opinion about my opinion lol.
