College Station police report a 44-year-old woman has been arrested after an emergency room nurse was beaten by a patient.
Tina Mashelle McRae of Bryan was booked into the Brazos County Jail on a charge of assault on a public servant.
Police were called to the Baylor Scott & White Emergency Room at 700 Scott & White Drive just after midnight Wednesday morning on what was originally a disorderly conduct complaint.
When police got there they learned that a patient had been brought into the hospital by ambulance, but while being treated had become belligerent and began hitting one of the members of the nursing staff several times, causing injuries.
Police noted that a registered nurse lawfully discharging an official duty is considered a public servant.
