One Sent To FCHC After Welfare Check

Archbold police performed a welfare check that resulted in Archbold Rescue assisting a 77-year-old Archbold woman and taking an allegedly intoxicated man to the Fulton County Health Center.

Police were called to a residence in the 200 block of Meadow Road at 6:23 pm, Tuesday, June 23, by Fulton County sheriff dispatchers.

Officers were told the woman had fallen and was on the ground. The police report states dispatchers told officers “that her husband was unable to get her up. Dispatchers advised of concerns that the husband was heavily intoxicated and belligerent.”

The report states an officer made forcible entry into the home “due to the fact that the male could not get to the door to unlock it.

“Archbold medics were able to help the woman off the ground, and then transported the male to FCHC.”
