Man accused of attacking nurse at Wisconsin hospital

Police arrested a 24-year-old man early Saturday morning after he reportedly forced his way into Select Specialty Hospital in Madison, Wis., and attacked a nurse, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

Authorities say Michael R. Jarocki forced open a locked door to gain entry to the hospital at about 2:40 a.m. Saturday. Once inside, police say Mr. Jarocki threatened a nurse and put his hands on the nurse's neck.

There was a struggle between the nurse and Mr. Jarocki before a security officer arrived and put handcuffs on Mr. Jarocki. Police arrested him on possible charges of damage to property, disorderly conduct and battery, according to the report.
