32-year-old Samantha Chase was jailed this week after being combative with EMS and hospital staff after they responded to help her during a seizure. Evan Cox is a paramedic; he told police that his department responded to a female having a seizure, but they were having an issue with her trying to fight them. They put Chase on a gurney and placed her into the ambulance. She was uncooperative and yelled at the EMTs to let her out. She stood up and out of the gurney and pushed Mr. Cox against the ambulance seat, then punched him on the right side of his face. Police tried to get her out of the ambulance while she was still yelling at EMS. Then she freed her right hand and tried to punch Mr. Cox again. Ms. Chase was extremely intoxicated and told police she had a lot, “probably too much to drink.” She also stated that she takes seven medications and shouldn’t have mixed them with alcohol. Ms. Chase was transported to the hospital and was uncooperative once she arrived. She yelled at staff and told a nurse she was going to punch her. Ms. Chase was taken into custody and transported to booking.
Samantha Ray Chase of Beach Street in Woodsville, NH, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on May 23, charged with public intoxication and assault of a health care provider. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $3,000.
