Nashville patient threatens death of doctor during treatment at Vanderbilt Wilson

24-year-old Zyrone Reed was charged with assault and disorderly conduct after cornering a doctor in an emergency room of the Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital and reportedly made threats to kill Dr. Karl Kelley while attempting to treat him.

On June 7th, Officer Humes received a call regarding a disorderly patient at the Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital located on 1411 West Baddour Pkwy in Lebanon. Upon arrival, Humes met with Dr. Karl Kelley, who informed law enforcement that a patient had cornered the doctor in a room and continually made threats to kill him.

The patient, who was identified as Zyrone Reed, was unwilling to speak with Humes when questioned. Officer Eicholtz arrived on to the scene shortly thereafter and began to speak with Reed. According to the affidavit, Reed was hostile throughout the incident and made personnel inside the emergency room unable to perform their work. An eyewitness account from Monica Shriver claimed that once Dr. Kelley entered the room to treat Reed, the patient trapped Kelley and left the doctor in fear of his life.

Zyrone Reed was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and assault. His bond was set at $2,500.
