Emergency room outburst leads to arrest


A Le Grand man was arrested and taken to Marshall County Jail earlier this week by Marshalltown police after an incident in the UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown Emergency Room.

Capt. Brian Batterson of the MPD said Jakub Aaron Wright, 37, was belligerent toward emergency room staff after receiving treatment for a fall. Emergency room staff called police because the defendant was intoxicated. Upon arrival, police found the defendant belligerent and confirmed he was intoxicated.

A criminal complaint and affidavit filed in Marshall County District Court said Wright actively resisted being placed in handcuffs and in a squad car. A second criminal complaint and affidavit said Wright admitted he was intoxicated when admitted to the emergency room.

Additionally, the defendant had a significant Blood Alcohol Content. Wright remains in the Marshall County Jail on two cash/surety bonds of $300 each.
