A Peoria woman arrested on a probation-violation warrant brought a hospital emergency room to a standstill when she tried escaping through bathroom ceiling, police said.
A police report said Aleasha Haines was arrested at a residence in Peoria on Dec. 12 and then taken to a police substation when she began to complain of back pain and nausea.
The report, obtained by The Republic Thursday, said paramedics from the city’s fire department responded and transported Haines by ambulance to Arrowhead Hospital at 67th Avenue and Union Hills Drive in Glendale for evaluation. An officer rode with the Haines in the ambulance to ensure she could not escape, according to police.
The officer removed Haines’ handcuff at the request of emergency staff. Haines then asked to use the restroom, police said.
“After approximately five minutes time ... a large crashing noise was heard,” the report said.
The officer standing guard outside demanded that Haines unlock the door, which she did.
"The ceiling tiles above the toilet had been pulled down and broken,” the report said.
"Aleasha exited the bathroom and was covered with a white chalk substance, consistent with the ceiling tile material,” the report said.
Police said the sink also broke under Haines’ weight as did the steel support beams holding the ceiling tiles in place “showing force had been used to pull the ceiling down,” documents said.
Police documents said activity in the emergency room "was disrupted and patient care was halted" due to the disturbance.
Hospital officials estimated the damage would cost about $1,500 to repair, according to police.
Haines was booked into the Fourth Avenue jail in Phoenix on charges including disorderly conduct and criminal damage.
