LA CROSSE, Wisc. — A 35-year-old woman is facing criminal charges after being accused of assaulting two nurses in the emergency room of Mayo Clinic in La Crosse.
Felicia Foster was charged in La Crosse County Circuit Court on Tuesday with two felony counts of battery to an emergency medical provider and two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct. A $1,000 signature bond was set, the La Crosse Tribune reported.
Foster was taken by ambulance to the ER last July and appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicant, according to a criminal complaint.
Prosecutors say Foster became combative during treatment and punched one nurse several times, including once in the face causing a slight jaw dislocation. The other nurse was punched in the shoulder.
Foster was given a chemical restraint.
