Local woman charged with battery on hospital emergency room staff


A local woman faces charges after authorities say she became combative and committed battery on two nurses at a local hospital. 

40-year-old Jessica Olds entered the hospital intoxicated, according the Lafayette Police Association Facebook page.

While the staff was attempting to help her, she allegedly then committed an assault on the two nurses. 

Police were called to scene and Olds was arrested and charged with two counts of battery of ER personnel, and then taken to the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center and booked.

Her bond is set at $3,000. 

The hospital staff was treated for non-life threatening injuries, according to Lafayette Police, and returned to work.
