Ft. Collins Coloradoan – Bulging scar tissue marks the right side of Steven Hodges’ forehead, a place vulnerable to bumps when he collapses into disorienting seizures.
It was still taped from a previous injury last May, when the mentally disabled man was walking to a store near his Fort Collins home to get quarters for laundry. Another seizure hit, and he banged his forehead on the sidewalk.
Firefighters and medics were called. Then police. Hodges, 55, did not cooperate.
“Hodges became very aggressive with staff and at one point ran away from them,” according to the July 8 report from Fort Collins Police Officer William Biberos.
