A Harlan County man was arrested at the Harlan ARH Hospital on Monday on charges including first-degree wanton endangerment. Medical staff called police after 35 year old Jacob Begley of Evarts, Kentucky was physically assaulting staff members and attempted to stab a male staff member with an ink pen. After being released for medical treatment, Begley placed a female staff member in a headlock and attempted to choke her out. He was eventually tazed three times after refusing to comply with verbal commands and refusing to be placed in handcuffs. Begley was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, harassment, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, menacing and fourth-degree assault. He was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center.
