URBANA — A Champaign man who allegedly punched a fellow patient in the face at an Urbana hospital is due in court Tuesday.
An Urbana police report said Andrew J. Bermingham, 31, who listed an address in the 100 block of Kenwood Road, was arrested for aggravated battery after he allegedly hit a 44-year-old Tolono man in the face at Provena Covenant Medical Center, 1400 W. Park St., U, on Friday night.
The report said both men were patients on the same floor and that Bermingham struck the man once, breaking several bones in his face.
Bermingham was taken to the county jail after the incident, which occurred about 10:20 p.m. Friday.
He remained in jail Sunday and was expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
