A Toledo, Ohio minister is suing a local hospital and a group of security guards he claims attacked him while he was visiting the facility more than a year ago.
The Reverend Alford Poisson claims at least five guards at St. Vincent's Hospital unjustly assaulted him in front of several witnesses, including the ministers then six-year-old grandson.
According to the suit, guards were "outraged" after the pastor remarked they did not have a sense of humor.
Poisson claims during the July 21, 2007 incident, he was sworn at, escorted out of the hospital and then kicked and shocked with a stun gun.
The incident was recorded by the hospital's security cameras.
The hospital filed assault charges against poisson after the confrontation, but prosecutors through out the case.
