COLUMBUS, Ohio April 27 2012 - Police said on Thursday that they identified the man who struck a security guard with a vehicle at Riverside Methodist Hospital in October.
According to police, Bryce Allen Jr., of Jacksonville, Ark., used his car to strike security guard Sgt. Chad Rosser near the Emergency Room entrance, at about 11 p.m. on Oct. 13.
Rosser was called to respond when Allen, 46, argued with a valet parker, 10TV’s Maureen Kocot reported.
Allen, 46, allegedly used his 2000 black Cadillac to push Rosser into a stop sign before fleeing the scene. Rosser suffered minor injuries because of the incident.
Investigators said that they tracked Allen down when they traveled to Jacksonville, Ark. He was charged with felonious assault and tampering with evidence.
Allen was being held in the Pulaski County Jail, in Arkansas, on a homicide charge unrelated to the Riverside Methodist Hospital incident.
According to police, Allen drove around a barricade and ran over two firefighters and a police officer who were responding to a crash involving his mother in Arkansas.
Jacksonville Fire Capt. Donald Jones was killed. Allen is facing a second-degree murder charge in Jones’ death.
Bryce Allen, Allen’s father, said that he was stunned.
“I know he was trying to get to his mother, but as far as that other part of the catastrophe, I can’t believe it,” Bryce Allen said.
