BUTTE – A woman in Butte faces a felony assault charge after she stabbed a security guard at the local hospital.
Linda Berger, 50, reportedly became erratic while being treated at St. James Healthcare on Sunday night, when she grabbed a pair of scissors from a counter in the hospital.
As a security guard restrained her from behind, Berger allegedly stabbed him in the arm with the scissors before she was subdued by staff.
The guard was treated for the non-life threatening wound.
Berger remains jailed at this time.
