WORTHINGTON — After assaulting a man in Worthington last November because he believed the victim was a North Korean spy, Trenton Bisaillon has been involuntarily committed to an inpatient mental health facility.
As of Monday, Bisaillon had begun involuntary medication. A psychiatrist who has been working with him explained Monday in Nobles County District Court that Bisaillon has an ongoing psychosis that disrupts his life in ways such as the November assault. The doctor testified that he believes Bisaillon lacks the capacity to make a decision about his health, and that a reasonable person would accept the psychiatric medication.
The psychiatrist added that according to Bisaillon's medical history, he has made some progress while taking psychiatric drugs in the past.
Fifth Judicial District Judge Gordon Moore granted the petition to administer drugs to Bisaillon against his will.
"It is my hope that you'll work cooperatively with hospital staff," Moore told Bisaillon.
