Elderly Man Guilty Of Hitting Hospital Guard

A 71-year-old man is found guilty of hitting a hospital security guard in the mouth and causing the officer to spit up blood.

Walter James Gray of Tyler was originally charged with assault of a peace officer, but the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor assault. The crime happened when Gray was taken to the UT Health Center in February, but refused treatment and then became violent.

Gray faces up to one year in jail.
