Levi Dale Lucas – Destructs Hospital when he doesn’t get his way

A registered sex offender who went to Providence Medford Medical Center for an injured finger Saturday night went berserk in the emergency room, smearing blood on the wall and destroying medical equipment, according to Medford police.

“It was just such outlandish, disappointing behavior,” said police Sgt. Mark Boone. “It was very vicious. He got frustrated because he was waiting.”

Levi Dale Lucas, 21, of Central Point and Kassandra Jean Godfrey, 22, of Medford were arrested on felony criminal mischief and disorderly conduct charges. Lucas is a registered sex offender and is in the Jackson County jail, being held without bail. Godfrey remained in custody Sunday night on $20,000 bail.

Lucas also was arrested on Nov. 6 on charges of being a felon in possession of a weapon and a parole violation. Lucas appeared in Jackson County Circuit Court on charges of first-degree sexual abuse and attempted assault on a peace officer in 2005.

Boone said Lucas became angry after waiting about 13 minutes before he was seen for his finger, and to help appease him, hospital staff took him to a room.

“While he was in the room, he moved the curtains, locked the doors and broke up the inside of the room,” Boone said.

Medical equipment was destroyed and other equipment will have to be recalibrated before it can be used.

“The entire room had to be sanitized because the subject smeared his bloody hand on the wall,” said Boone.

When hospital staff managed to enter the room, Boone said Lucas confronted them.

“They got back in there to suture up his finger,” he said. “He was challenging some of the staff to fight outside.”

Boone said Lucas and Godfrey showed no signs of intoxication despite their unusual behavior.

Lucas injured his finger when the flesh became crushed by the side of an engine block.

After police arrived, Lucas’ finger was sutured before he was taken to jail, said Boone.
