June 10, 5:31 p.m. – A nurse requested assistance regarding alleged harassment at work. The person allegedly harassing her was the son-in-law of one of her patients.

Earlier that day, the son-in-law began yelling at her regarding trash left outside the patient’s home.

According to the son-in-law, the nurse had begun to act unprofessionally recently, at one point breaking a handrail as well as a washer and dryer. Instead of apologizing, the son-in-law said the nurse lied about the handrail and said the washer and dryer unit needed to be replaced.

The son-in-law became upset about the trash due to seeing one of the nurse’s items in the trash, which he said the nurse also did not admit to.

At this point, the officer told the nurse that it would be best if she left the residence to avoid further conflict. She agreed.

Later, the agency that the nurse worked for agreed to send another nurse.

Soon after this discovery, the officer learned that the driver had three active arrest warrants from earlier offenses that were redacted within the report.

The driver was arrested and also issued a citation not specified in the report. A passenger within the vehicle later got a ride and the car was driven away by another family member.

Later, the driver learned he was not eligible for bail.
