assault arrest 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (4/12/18) — A 24-year-old Providence man was charged with assaulting medical personnel at a local hospital this week.

According to a Madisonville Police Department arrest report, officers responded 7:48 a.m. Tuesday to Baptist Health emergency department, where a worker indicated Labryant A. Broady “assaulted an RN and an MD while she was performing her duties.”

The nurse told officers she was walking through the halls of the ER to treat patients, when she saw Broady leave his room and struck her on the face with his fist, according to the report. Broady then struck the doctor’s open hand after attempting to calm him down.

He was charged with third-degree assault (EMS, fire, rescue squad) and taken to Hopkins County Jail, where he was listed as being held this morning on $2,000 cash bond.
