Late emergency room check-in leads to incident inside Baptist East
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A local woman was arrested at a Baptist hospital after security claims she attacked an employee and vandalized the admissions room.
According to police records, Laquitta Fields became “irate” Monday after she was not seen on time while inside the emergency room check-in area at Baptist East Hospital on Walnut Grove Road.
It appears security was called to the location and that’s when Fields allegedly picked up a desk phone and hit the employee. She then started vandalizing the admissions room by pushing everything off the desk, including the computer and phone.
She was subdued and placed into custody. She was later charged with assault.
