Naked patient ‘takes off’ from ER, arms himself with knives

From NWFdailynews:

A naked man “took off” from the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center emergency room Saturday night and went into Westwood Retirement Center, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office report on the incident.

Once inside Westwood, which sits across the street from the hospital, the 45-year-old Panama City man armed himself with knives, the report said.

He was taken into custody without incident, thanks, in part to a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who was in the parking lot when the incident occured, the report said.
