Camden Police Department (CPD) Twice during the night of June 8 into the early morning hours of June 9, Camden officers responded to a KershawHealth emergency room to deal with a patient who allegedly assaulted a hospital employee and jumped over the nurses’ counter. According to two CPD incident reports, an officer arrived the first time just before 8 p.m. June 8 to find several emergency staff members holding the man on the ground. The officer and the employees managed to get the man handcuffed and moved to a bed despite him allegedly resisting and shouting obscenities.
