A registered nurse at Erlanger was booked into the Hamilton County Jail Thursday night and charged with assault on police after fighting with officers inside the hospital's emergency room.

Police responded to the hospital at 9:30 p.m. on a report of an assault and were told by staff there that Roger Davis, 42, was causing problems for them while they were caring for his mother in the emergency room. Davis was asked by staff and the hospital's vice president to leave, but he refused, according to court documents.

Davis was in the lobby speaking loudly about his disagreement with hospital staff when officers arrived, but when they asked him to keep it down, he said he was speaking with his father and would continue.
