Joshua Williams, 30, of Muldrow was charged Jan. 3 in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw with assault and battery on an emergency medical technician, a felony.
Williams entered a not guilty plea to the charge and his bond was set at $4,500.
According to the police report filed with the charges, Williams arrived at his Sallisaw place of employment on Dec. 2 and appeared to be intoxicated. When Williams fell and injured his head, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and police were called to assist because Williams “became combative with the medical team,” the report alleges.
The report says that Williams calmed down and the EMTs began his transport to a Fort Smith hospital, but Williams again became “combative and struck one of the medical team members.” Police removed Williams from the ambulance and placed him under arrest then transported him to the Sallisaw hospital. According to the report, Williams had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.21.
Williams next court appearance is scheduled for March 1 on Associate District Judge Kyle Waters felony disposition docket.
