A man spent some of his birthday in cuffs last week, after his arrest at San Francisco General Hospital for allegedly plucking out his roommate’s eye.
36-year-old Tyrone Shelton was arrested on afternoon of his birthday last Thursday, at SF General’s Psychiatric ward. The charge: felony suspicion of aggravated mayhem.
As the Vallejo Times-Herald reports, Shelton and his roommate were fighting over the volume of a radio when the enucleation occurred.
The two had been living at Crestwood Manor, a skilled nursing facility and treatment program in Vallejo, but were both taken to SF General for treatment after the altercation.
Both are considered to have violent tendencies, say police.
