| Monday, September 14, 2009


When an elderly man being helped by paramedics was told he needed to go to the hospital, the man disagreed.

Then, police say, he threatened to pull a gun on the EMTs.

Around midnight Sunday, EMS was called to an apartment complex at the 10000 block of Sahara to help Rodney Ray, 53. After checking Ray out, the paramedics told him his oxygen levels were low, and they said he needed to go to the hospital for further medical assistance.

But according to police, Ray became upset and refused to go to the hospital. While paramedics argued their case, Ray threatened to pull out a pistol.
