A Roseburg man was arrested early Friday morning after allegedly refusing to leave the hospital after being discharged, according to police.

Timothy James Germond, 36, was voluntarily transported to CHI Mercy Medical Center for evaluation, but after he was discharged and given several order to leave the property, he remained.

Police said Germond was taken into custody but initially resisted arrest. During the incident, Germond banged his head against the cage of the patrol car, injuring his forehead.

He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree criminal trespass, resisting arrest and second-degree criminal mischief.

Ambulance ride to the hospital "transported", medical care at the hospital, security trying to get him to leave, police officers getting him out of the hospital, employees at the jail doing intake and supervision, a judge to hear the case, free attorney to represent him in court....TAXPAYER MONEY USED! When are we going to start punishing these people? This person has been arrested multiple times.

Punishment isn't an effective cure for mental illness. Only someone who is thinking clearly can break the revolving door cycle, and that won't be the mentally ill person...
