LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A suburban Atlanta nurse had to be tasered by police who said she was obstructing an arrest.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Marthe Bein-Aime was released from the Gwinnett County Detention Center on Monday after herself being arrested over the weekend, police said.
Police went to the SummitRidge Psychiatric hospital to arrest a patient accused of sexually assaulting another patient, Lawrenceville police Maj. Paul King told Channel 2 Action News.
“We met with hospital staff and informed them that they had the warrant for the patient’s arrest,” King said.
But Bein-Aime would not allow officers to get to the patient’s room, telling them, “Hell no ... this is not happening while I am in charge,” according to a police incident report.
King said when she refused to cooperate with police, officers had no other choice but to use a short burst from a Taser on Bein-Aime’s back side.
