Two people who were intoxicated inside a hospital yet rebuffed security officers’ attempts to make them leave eventually got stunned with Tasers by local police.

On April 11, the two drunken visitors entered Enloe Medical Center in Chino, CA, and allegedly began disturbing patients, according to the Chino Enterprise-Record. Security officers asked them to leave, at which point one of the suspects allegedly struck an officer.

Police arrived in response, and both suspects allegedly resisted arrest and were shot with Tasers in response, the Enterprise-Record reported.
