  • The nurse in question reportedly looks worse than this one.
Emotions often run high at hospitals, but 19-year-old Mack E. Hudson, Jr. of North St. Louis County sounds like a real loose cannon.

When Hudson was told by a nurse at Christian Hospital in Hazelwood that he couldn't go in and see a family member, he allegedly punched her in the face several times and tried to choke her, according to the Post-Dispatch.

When the 38-year-old nurse fell down, the fists kept flying.

It took one of the nurse's colleagues and no fewer than FOUR security guards to mollify the guy until police came.

He's been charged with second-degree assault of emergency personnel.
