Other members of the hospital staff stated that Holmes refused to stop after being told to do so.

Upon arrival of the police, Holmes was placed under arrest for obscenity, stating that he did not understand his Miranda rights.

On April 10, Holmes was arrested for the same action at LSU Ochsner Hospital in Monroe.

When she asked what he was doing, Holmes moved the blanket, exposing himself and his actions.

Upon arrival of the police in this instance, he was placed under arrest and stated that he did understand his Miranda rights, but denied the nurse’s accusations.

Holmes is currently in the Ouachita Correction Center.
