The Bowling Green Police Department is investigating the death of a patient at The Medical Center. The Commonwealth Attorney's office asked the PD to look into the death of 43-year-old Richard Vick of Russellville.
Police say Vick checked himself into the hospital's psychiatric unit on Friday the 27th. On Saturday the 28th, he apparently was involved in an altercation with the staff where he had to be restrained. He died Thursday morning.
Police are waiting on the results of an autopsy performed in Louisville.
A spokesperson for The Medical Center says the hospital is cooperating fully with the investigation and that their hearts and prayers go out to the Vick family.
