A 76-year-old former nun says she was roughed up by Columbus Police after refusing to leave a nursing home she was visiting, according to a federal lawsuit she filed. The woman, Elizabeth Bormann, had driven 540 miles to visit a 96-year-old friend at the nursing clinic, but when she got there she found out the man’s legal guardian had removed her from the list of approved guests. She insisted she wouldn’t leave until she could tell her friend herself she was removed from the list.
From the local TV station, ABC6: Police say the removal was a response to a series of scams perpetrated by multiple women that had cost the man more than $500,000.
Investigators do not suspect Bormann of involvement in the scams…
Columbus Police Officer Theodis N. Turner, III was dispatched to the nursing home, where he instructed Bormann to leave the facility.
That, according to Bormann, is when the situation became violent.
"He said to me, 'I've had enough of you,' and he charged into me, basically, and somehow or the other, charged into my side, took my arm. It all happened so fast.
"Before I know it, I was down on my knees and then, of course, I urinated, and I started a little crying, and pretty much I was just stunned.
"I was humiliated. I do believe that I've become a victim. It just was such a surprise and such a shock."
