CRESTVIEW – A man who refused to leave a local emergency room or follow instructions to be admitted was charged with trespassing and removed from the premises.
Emergency room staff at North Okaloosa Medical Center told Crestview Police Department officers that the 47-year-old man had refused to stay in the room where they’d placed him.
They said they told him repeatedly to stay and listen to hospital staff, but he refused.
They then asked him to leave.
After he was escorted out of the ER, he refused to leave the parking lot and asked the officer why he’d been asked to leave.
He was then placed under arrest.
