32-year-old Kyle Morris had a scuffle at the 4th Avenue South and Broadway intersection in the early hours of February 29th. NFD medics flagged officers down regarding the fight, and when they arrived, they noticed Morris lying on the ground. Morris was visibly intoxicated and was belligerent to medics as he refused medical attention. Medics were removing Morris from the gurney to detain him when he started running away from them. When Medics tried to gain control of Morris, he started swinging, and then he punched Patrick Nolan, a medic, in the face, breaking his $600 prescription glasses. Morris continued to flee, disregarding officers’ commands to stop, and was caught following a brief foot pursuit. Morris was taken into custody for the assault of a first responder, vandalism, public intoxication, evading arrest, and resisting arrest.
