Charles Emmett Logan ran through a Minnesota hospital and attacked nurses using a metal bed post. According to Mail Online, the 68-year-old patient was “paranoid,” and decided to run down the corridors swinging the piece of metal. Logan went to nurses stations on his floor at St. John’s Hospital, and violently attacked whomever was in his way… And this story gets more bizarre.
“Police were unable to subdue Logan when they located him three blocks away… three officers were needed to take him down after the probes of their Taser failed to attach and take him down. Then, when they finally managed to get handcuffs on him, he suddenly died.”
Charles Emmett Logan injured four nurses at the Minnesota hospital that day, but all are expected to be okay. Leslie Lichey, 40, Brooke Scott, 22, Nicole Eenisse, 32, and Kelly Roberto, 30, were all struck by Logan. Their injuries ranged from a broken wrist to a collapsed lung.
According to the New York Daily News, this attack happened on Sunday. Logan had been in the hospital being treated for “episodes of confusion and paranoia” when something went wrong. It was around 2 a.m. when he got out of his hospital bed and attacked the nurses. Logan then ran outside, and police caught up to him in the street.
“Virtually every element of this is tragic. Certainly for the man himself, and we still don’t really know what happened to him. Second, for his family, obviously, he was someone’s dad, brother, uncle, cousin and then, of course, for the nursing staff who were just going about doing their work… Folks knew he was struggling, but I don’t think anyone expected this would end in violence,” said Maplewood Police Chief Paul Schnell.
Charles Emmett Logan was in the Minnesota area hospital when he got a visit from his family members and a lawyer on Saturday night. Police believe that their meeting could have upset Mr. Logan, and set him off.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Logan and his family fought over custody. His family members believe that he was given the wrong medication, which made him act the way he did. Mr. Logan was described as a non-violent person and a “salt-of-the-earth kind of guy.” An autopsy is pending, and Logan’s family is curious to learn what was in his system when he essentially just dropped dead after he snapped.
