(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A resident in the area of Sills Street tells us that an unfortunate event had unfolded on their street.
A man was terribly high and acting erratically which resulted in a 911 call to get the man some help, according to a person who was with the man. Upon paramedics arrival, the man became disgruntled and aggressive, resulting in him assaulting a paramedic who was only trying to treat him.
Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service booted down a door to get to the man and regained control of the situation.
The man was spotted being escorted out in leg cuffs (handcuffs for the feet).
After this incident, the male was taken to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centres Emergency Department (A.K.A. “The Hilton”) where he will be monitored by doctors and nurses until he is deemed good to go. A Thunder Bay Police service officer will most likely remain with the man until at least that point.
