William McClellan, 29, 700 block Decatur St., was charged with assault and persistent disorderly conduct.

McClellan was admitted to the emergency room while he was unresponsive, but when he jolted awake around 6 p.m., he immediately became combative with staff, according to a Sandusky police report.

McClellan allegedly began to swing wildly, and in the struggle, kicked a nurse’s face, the report said. An intoxicated McClellan later told police he had smoked marijuana and believed it was laced with something, the report said.

When officers arrived, McClellan was still fighting against staff and trying to slip out of his restraints while yelling, the report said.

McClellan was held at the Erie County jail upon his release from the hospital.
