WORTHINGTON - Cara Knisley, 38, Lismore, is charged with fourth-degree assault of emergency medical personnel, a felony, following an alleged incident in early April.
According to court documents, the Worthington Police Department was requested to help monitor a patient in the emergency department at Sanford Worthington Medical Center.
The officer and medical staff monitored Knisley who became combative with staff. During the alleged incident, Knisley struck a paramedic, knocking his glasses across the hospital room.
As both staff and law enforcement attempted to restrain Knisley after the assault, Knisley yelled at staff saying, “I’m gonna beat your face in. You’re gonna be sorry for this. You guys are done for.”
Knisley made her first appearance on the charge earlier this week in Nobles County District Court. She was released on her own recognizance and was ordered to remain law abiding. Knisley is next scheduled to appear in court in June.
If convicted, the charge carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison, a $4,000 fine or both.
