Responding Ruston Police officers were told Shawn Ethan Barr, 27, had cursed and yelled threats of violence at staff and then punched the nurse’s station window, breaking the glass.

Officers escorted Barr outside where he said he was not going to comply with officers and began to flex and pull away. He was placed in restraints as he continued to make threats about what he would do to the officers.
