A second call was made to police later that night as a nurse attempted to change an IV in Beisswagner’s room, police said.

At the time, the patient was asleep on a bed when the nurse attempted to remove the IV, but he woke up as she leaned over him and he took a swing at her with a closed fist, injuring her finger, authorities said.

Beisswanger was arrested and has been charged with several offenses, including three counts of felony aggravated assault and third-degree felony terroristic threats, NorthcentralPA.com reported.

He is currently being held at the Lycoming County Prison on $75,000 bail, officials said.
