COTTONWOOD: Houston County Sheriff 911 dispatched Cottonwood Rescue to a medical emergency this afternoon.
When the EMS units arrived the patient was apparently under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. The patient was combative and threatening to the EMS unit.
Cottonwood Rescue requested Houston County Sheriff 911 dispatch law enforcement to the scene. When the Houston County Sheriff Deputy arrived the subject was combative with the Deputy.
An additional deputy responded. There were active arrest warrants at Dothan Police Department for the subject. He had no apparent real medical emergency. But he did get transported - not by ambulance and not to the hospital. But he got a ride in the Donald Valenza UBER where no credit card is needed ( Houston County Sheriff Patrol vehicle ) to the Steve Parrish Hilton where they leave the light on ( Dothan City Jail. )
EMS units and Fire Units are often in dangerous situations such as this today.
