An 18-year-old man brought to Kaiser Hospital in Richmond to be treated for intoxication allegedly escaped the hospital Thursday night after ramming a chair into a door.
But the teenager was spotted about an hour later after police saw him “staggering on Macdonald Avenue,” spokesperson Nicole Abetkov said. That led to a foot chase, a violent resistance and ultimately a return to the hospital.
The incident unfolded about 11:45 p.m. in the unit block of Crest Ave., when officers found the suspect “extremely intoxicated and obviously underage,” Abetkov said.
Police dropped him off at Kaiser, where he was allegedly uncooperative with medical staff and used a chair to ram the door to escape the hospital.
One of the officers who originally brought the suspect to the hospital spotted the teen again on Macdonald Avenue “staggering.”
“The suspect fled towards the BART station and once he was caught, violently resisted being taken into custody,” Abetkov said.
He was again transported to Kaiser, but this time he was sedated after he was once again combative with hospital staff, Abetkov said.
“He was later cited and released to the care of his mother,” Abetkov said.
