Police records show Garza was unwanted at the hospital’s parking lot. A police report states a witness saw him laying on the parking lot, blocking traffic and acting abnormally. Garza, the report states, ignored multiple requests to leave and continued to loiter on the property.
The report states Garza attempted to enter the helipad area, which is off limits to civilian foot traffic.
Garza was arrested and charged with criminal trespass, a Class B misdemeanor.
On May 26, at 2 p.m., Garza was once again arrested, this time at the 200 block of Wildcat Drive, where a man reported Garza was on top of his car. Records state the caller advised Garza had attempted to force entry into the vehicle, and when denied he jumped onto the car.
Garza was again arrested and charged with criminal trespass of a vehicle, a Class B misdemeanor.
