TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A Twin Falls man is behind bars on three felony counts of battery against health care workers.
A Twin Falls Police officer was dispatched to Canyon View Behavioral Health on Thursday morning for what was deemed an out of control patient.
Employees told police that 26-year-old Tyler Dominguez was making threats about self harm and was throwing himself into a door.
While employees tried to intervene, court documents reveal he punched a security guard and allegedly spat on the faces of the security guard and a health care worker, plus kicked health care workers in the legs while being restrained.
Dominguez is being held on a $50,000 bond.
