Jason Jermaine Staples, 42 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he attempted to hit a nurse after causing a disturbance at the Redmond Hospital ER.

Reports stated that Staples tirade began when he began to use curse words and profanity around others.  When a peace officer attempted to take him into custody he resisted and eventually attempted to hit the nurse.

Staples is charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and obstruction.
