Nurse Survives Plastic Spork Attack By Louisiana Hospital Patient

A Louisiana nurse survived an attempted spork stabbing by an “extremely combative and aggressive” patient, police report.

Officers were dispatched yesterday to Glenwood Regional Health Center’s behavioral health unit “in reference to a disturbance” around 2 AM.

Upon arrival at the West Monroe facility, hospital staff told cops that Madison Bingham, 19, had been “extremely combative and aggressive” toward staff and “made numerous threats.”

The patient was arrested after a female nurse said Bingham “attempted to stab her with a plastic ‘spork.’” The nurse was able to dodge the alleged spork stabbing bid.

Monroe, who lives in Vicksburg, Mississippi, was arrested for simple assault, a misdemeanor, and booked into the local parish jail, where she is locked up in lieu of $500 bond.

A probable cause affidavit does not reveal why Bingham was in the hospital, or whether the spork was seized as evidence.
