At about 6:40 a.m., LMC emergency room staff called police, requesting assistance with a “combative patient who had disconnected himself from his IV and catheter and was trying to leave the hospital,” police said. “The patient was naked and bleeding at the time of the call. According to police, the Laredo police response and situation assessment required the use of a Taser by the police officer.” Soon after he was returned to LMC’s care, Barrientos died, LPD said.
