LAYTON — A man who threatened to get into a shootout with police at Davis Hospital and Medical Center was arrested Tuesday night.
About 7 p.m., Dennis Judd, 39, walked into the emergency room of the hospital, claimed he needed medication and "threatened to hurt employees" and get into a gun battle with police, said Layton police Lt. Shawn Horton.
Judd would not cooperate with nurses or say why he needed medication, Horton said.
The man left after he was refused the drugs and hit a planter box with his vehicle before driving off. A nearby Davis County sheriff's deputy spotted Judd and followed him until he eventually pulled over and was arrested.
Judd was booked into the Davis County Jail for investigation of making a terroristic threat, evading, hit and run, disorderly conduct and reckless driving.
In 2009, Judd was convicted in 2nd District Court of criminal mischief, a second-degree felony, and assault by a prisoner, a third-degree felony, and served time in jail, according to court records.
