  • Deputies arrested a Monroe, N.C. woman after she refused to remove herself from atop a doctor’s vehicle at the Regional Medical Center on Monday afternoon, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

A security officer reported that a woman was being loud and disruptive in the emergency room. She then left the emergency room and walked into the physicians’ parking lot where she climbed on top of a vehicle, the report said.

Deputies said they arrested the woman from atop the vehicle and placed her in handcuffs.

Emergency room doctors evaluated her and determined she should be committed for a psychiatric evaluation.

Deputies did not charge the woman with public disorderly conduct so that she could receive medical treatment for her issues rather than go to jail, the incident report states.
