Emergency Room doctors see it all. And they experience a lot.
The most recent example happened late Sunday night, when 36-year-old Matthew Hazelwood of Peru was taken to the Illinois Valley Community Hospital Emergency Room for extreme intoxication. While he was there, Hazelwood allegedly kicked his ER doctor in the chest. He was taken to the LaSalle County Jail on a charge of Aggravated Battery.
Hazelwood needs $1,500 to bond out. He’s due back in court June 7th.
