A Niles woman has pleaded not guilty to charges filed after allegedly assaulting staff members at the St. Joseph Medical Center’s Emergency Room in Warren.

According to a report filed in Warren Municipal Court, two employees working in the ER last week were punched, bitten, and “bull rushed” by 27-year-old Abrianna Tringale, who they say was being “belligerent”.

A security officer reports finding Tringale being held down by a staff member until medication took effect, causing her to calm down and sleep.

Tringale was booked into the county jail on two counts of assault.

Another court hearing is set for next week.
