A Prairie Village man was charged Friday with mistreating an elderly woman and assaulting a police officer during a disturbance inside an Overland Park assisted living facility.
Scott James Booz is charged in Johnson County District Court with mistreatment of a dependent adult, interference with a law enforcement officer, criminal restraint, battery on a law enforcement officer and criminal damage to property.
Police said Booz, 49, was visiting a relative Thursday night at the facility in the 6900 block of West 81st Street when he barricaded a door and broke property inside the woman’s room.
When officers arrived and attempted to arrest Booz, he refused to cooperate and spit on one officer, police said.
