Barahona transported to Wellington Hospital for observations

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Jorge Barahona was instructed by Palm Beach sheriff deputies to get himself ready for court Thursday morning.

That's when he attempted to harm himself by thrusting himself backwards causing an injury to his head. He was immediately checked by emergency personnel, and it was decided he was ok to appear in court.

Barahona refused to cooperate with deputies and administrative personnel by verbally not answering questions.

The first appearance judge made the determination that Barahona could attend court at another time. It was then decided to transport Barahona to Wellington Hospital for observation.

Stayed tuned on-air and online for the latest.
