A Saline man was taken into custody at the North Louisiana Medical Center early Sunday morning after he allegedly refused to leave.
A Lincoln Parish deputy sheriff at the hospital on another call was approached by the staff regarding an emergency room patient who refused to leave the building. The man, Marcus Henry, 54, of Saline, was reportedly uncooperative and had been instructed to leave the emergency room.
The deputy instructed Henry to leave but he refused multiple times. Henry was talking incoherently and showing signs of impairment. After repeated attempts to get Henry to leave, deputies had to physically pick him up and take him into custody.
He was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for disturbing the peace, resisting an officer, and remaining after being forbidden (trespassing).
