Veteran claims hospital guards beat him

Posted: Updated:

A military veteran is considering a lawsuit after he claims Grady Memorial Hospital security guards beat him and had him arrested.

The hospital says the man's claims of abuse are untrue.

Bryan Jones says he was suffering from the Swine Flu last January and was too weak to move when a guard asked him to stand and walk.

Jones claims security guards punched and kicked him in a confrontation in which he was thrown out of the hospital.

Jones' lawyer says the charge was dismissed this week, and now the veteran is considering a lawsuit.

Jones says he was later transported to the VA hospital in Atlanta where he became the first documented Georgian in 2014 with Swine Flu.

In response, Grady Memorial Hospital released the following statement:

“Our internal investigation results differ significantly from what Mr. Jones claims. Our findings show that he exhibited aggressive behavior in our Emergency Department waiting room that required action by Grady Public Safety to maintain the safety of other patients and the Emergency Department staff.”

Grady's Public Safety Officers assist thousands of patients and visitors every day without incident. We continue to be disappointed with Mr. Jones' allegations because they are not consistent with our policies and practices here at Grady.”
