3 Security guards employed by Grant Medical Center are on suspension after an incident caught on video. Mellena Jackson of Columbus, Oh was sitting outside and caught this footage of a man being detained for what seems like no reason at all.
“…they followed him outside (if he was told to leave, he did just that) and then they assaulted this man after following him outside. The force that was used was excessive.” Jackson said in a Facebook post
Joseph Moorer of Hashtag Comedy-Columbus, along with more than 7,500 people, shared the video. Moorer captioned :
“4 scary a** Top Flight” security guards with kevlar, handcuffs, pepper spray, and tasers.
Just because #45 is all over your page, doesn’t mean this isn’t still happening.
….This is security from Grant Hospital. #BlackLivesSTILLmatter . “
A statement from Oho Health officials indicated that they are aware of the situation and plan to investigate:
“We are aware of the incident that happened at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center last night and began investigating the matter immediately. The three security officers involved have been placed on a fact-finding suspension until the investigation is complete. When a situation like this occurs we take it very seriously. We anticipate providing more information about the investigation later today.”
