A Mundelein man was arrested after he allegedly punched two nurses while receiving medical care at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, police said.
The Libertyville Police Department responded around 1:19 a.m. on August 20 to Advocate Condell Medical Center, 801 South Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville, for a battery call.
According to a police report, hospital staff called 911 to report two nurses had been punched by a male patient in the emergency room.
Security officers at the hospital had restrained Johnson to the ground and then secured him to the hospital bed.
Responding officers arrived and met with medical staff, who identified the offender as Quincy P. Johnson, 21, of the 300 block of Midway Drive in Mundelein.
Officers attempted to speak with Johnson but he had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and was incoherent, according to the report.
The two nurses provided statements to officers and officers observed injuries on them.
Johnson was discharged from the hospital later that morning and taken into custody by officers, the report said.
He was transported to the Libertyville Police Department where he was processed.
Johnson was charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery. It is unclear why prosecutors did not approve aggravated battery charges based on the offense involving a nurse.
Johnson was released from custody after signing a $2,500 personal recognizance bond.
A court hearing is scheduled for September 14.
