    Police arrested a student on charges of assault of a public servant Tuesday afternoon in the Moudy North building.

    Fort Worth police, campus police, the Fort Worth fire department and MedStar were all present at the scene.

    Sgt. Kelly Ham of TCU police said the department would not comment on the incident, stating they were waiting to hear back from doctors to see if the suspect was in medical crisis at the time.

    Multiple calls to MedStar and emails to the Fort Worth police for more information on what occurred have gone unanswered.  

    Junior strategic communication major Elizabeth Birdsong said she was walking to her class on the second floor of Moudy North when she heard shouting and saw the suspect tackle a police officer and try to punch another one. She then saw “four or five” officers restrain and handcuff the suspect.

    Police then sent for an ambulance after the suspect claimed he was diabetic and had an insulin problem, Birdsong said. Birdsong said that the suspect kept asking why he was being arrested and said he did nothing wrong.

    The suspect was then put on a stretcher and carted off. TCU 360 reporters saw the suspect handcuffed to the stretcher as police escorted him out of the building.
