Police arrested a man dressed in a nurse’s uniform who they said threatened to kill officers after he was found standing intoxicated at the side of the road near a damaged motorcycle.
Officers said Daniel Mullis, 41, of Kennesaw, who claimed to be a nurse, initially ran away when confronted during the incident, which took place Tuesday at about 11 p.m. on Jiles Road in Kennesaw.
The police caught up with him, according to his arrest warrant, which said he had a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath,” along with red and watery eyes and slurred speech.
Mullis declined to say whether he had been drinking or to take field sobriety tests, officers said, and he also declined to cooperate when police tried to handcuff him.
According to his arrest warrant, police found two vials of Lorazepam and 36 Ziprasidone Hydrochloride capsules, both prescription drugs. In his pocket was the handbrake to the damaged motorcycle, police said.
While entering Acworth Jail, Mullis allegedly threatened to kill the arresting officer if he ever showed up at the suspect’s hospital.
“Accused did say that if your Affiant ever came to his hospital … he would kill me,” the officer wrote. “Accused did say that he has no compassion for police officers that come into his hospital. The statement was captured on body camera.”
Mullis faces three felony counts, two of possessing a controlled substance and one of making terroristic threats. He is also charged with misdemeanor DUI and three counts of obstruction.
He was arrested Wednesday and released Thursday on $15,000 bond.
