Scott & White Hospitaltreatment at S & W, Tyler, TX

On May 2, 2012, Peter "Pete" Sumaruck - a famed Texas inventor - was held against his will for 12 hours at Scott & White Hospital in Tyler, Texas where he was handcuffed by 5 police officer, repeatedly assaulted by hospital staff and held in locked confinement for hours. When Mr. Sumaruck asked police what law he had broken, they replied, "None." He was not a patient at the hospital, he had only stopped by their pharmacy, asking to refill a prescription. Police put him on a gurney in Emergency, while a hospital staff person said, "If you get off this gurney, I'm gonna whip your ###." Mr. Sumaruck did not try to get off the gurney, but staff proceeded to repeatedly assault him, with blows to the upper torso, including his throat, even after he told them how he had experienced very serious carotid artery surgery, now with a visible scar. After many hours, in a small locked examination room, they heavily sedated him and immediately put Mr. Sumaruck outside in the dark, to make his own way home.
