Patient goes wild at Centennial Hospital: Kristian Overton puts doctor in “chokehold”

21-year-old Kristian Overton had an altercation with a doctor in the emergency room, Daniel James Morris, at Centennial Hospital in the early hours of March 30th. When officers arrived, they spoke with Morris, who stated that Overton was admitted for a medical-related incident and was highly intoxicated. While Morris was treating Overton, he was uncooperative, ignoring orders to remain in bed. Shortly after, Overton told hospital staff he needed to use the restroom, or he would go all over the room. Hospital staff assisted Overton to the bathroom, during which he became verbally combative. Overton began threatening staff and “squirming” on the ground. Morris and other staff members then tried helping Overton back to his bed. Overton started to fight with staff, prompting them to carry him to his room. During the scuffle, Morris stated that Overton placed his arm around his neck, trying to “choke” him, and after he broke free, staff placed Overton in the bed. While they were placing Overton down, he bit Morris on top of his right hand, leaving a visible wound. Several hospital employees advised officers that they witnessed Overton put Dr. Morris in a “chokehold” and bite him. Morris wished to prosecute for the assault. Overton was taken into custody for aggravated assault on March 30th.

He said that he balled up his fists but never threw a punch, and when Officer Evans attempted to detain him, Jeremiah fell to the floor himself. Jeremiah was arrested and transported to booking, where he told police that he did not want to be treated, touched, or interrogated by the hospital staff. He asked the officer how he could be arrested based solely on hearsay since the officer did not watch him be disorderly. After repeatedly saying that his arrest was based on hearsay, he said that the officer was only arresting him for money and that he needed to let him go. He accused him of not caring for Jeremiah’s well-being or the well-being of the patients.
