BARABOO, Wis. (AP) - A 19-year-old Wisconsin Dells man is accused of punching a doctor and a nurse during a disturbance at a hospital last week.

Sterling Cloud faces felony battery charges in Sauk County. He also is charged with resisting an officer and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.

The Baraboo News Republic (https://bit.ly/1C8SJkb ) reports police were called to the emergency room at Reedsburg Area Medical Center on Wednesday around 2:30 a.m. on a report of an out-of-control patient.

Cloud reportedly had struck one of the nurses. When approached by the officers, he allegedly shouted at them.

According to the complaint, Cloud allegedly punched a doctor who tried to treat him. Officers handcuffed Cloud to the bed but then decided to take him to jail.

Cloud has been released on a $1,000 signature bond.
