Florida man arrested for obstruction, a few dozen beers later

While not the “crime of the century”, the TBT online reported how a night went from bad to worse for one local man…

A New Port Richey man is facing charges of disorderly conduct after cursing and obstructing medical personnel at the Medical Center in Trinity.

34-year-old Matthew Margetko called Pasco Fire Rescue after he was injured during a fight. The battery victim became belligerent to the arriving paramedics.

He was then transported to the hospital where he refused to calm down despite repeated warnings. He began to scream obscenities at nurses while other patients were around. He began to struggle and other hospital employees had to stop treating other patients in order to help subdue the defendant.

Pasco deputies were called to the scene and Margetko allegedly continued to scream at curse at the police, nurses and paramedics.

When police interviewed the man, he admitted to drinking roughly a “dozen bud lights”. He was then placed in jail and bond was set at a reasonable $250.

As of this writing, the suspect has yet to be charged. There has also been any idea as to what, if any, punishment he may face.
