71-Year-Old Man Sentenced To Jail

A 71-year-old man is sentenced to one year in jail.

Walter James Gray of Tyler was found guilty earlier this month of hitting a hospital security guard in the mouth, causing the officer to spit up blood.

He was originally charged with assault of a peace officer, but the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor assault.

The crime allegedly happened when Gray was taken to the UT Health Center in February, but refused treatment and then became violent.
