LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

61-year-old Ronald Michel Lillard was indicted by a Lubbock Grand Jury on Tuesday, charged with aggravated assault against a public servant.

The police report says Lillard stabbed a hospital worker in the eye with a colored pencil and hit another one in the face with a closed fist.

The hospital worker told police he was walking with Lillard when he broke off and started making disparaging comments about the hospital in a waiting room.

The worker tried to remove Lillard from the area. That's when he told police Lillard stabbed him in the eye with a pencil.

The report says another hospital worker was punched in the face with a closed fist, and hit in the head repeatedly during the struggle.

The report says Lillard continued to struggle with officers as he was taken for medical clearance and taken to the Lubbock County Detention Center.

One arresting officer said Lillard was reciting "The Lord's Prayer" repeatedly during transport and told him that he was ready to die.  He then made comments about "giving them a good fight" and said "I'm gonna take two or three with me."

In the police report, the officer said Lillard grabbed a pen out of his pocket while the officer was photographing his injuries and charged him.

Officers struggled with Lillard until jail staff came and were able to restrain him.

Officers sustained various cuts and minor injuries during the struggle.

Lillard is being held in the Lubbock Co. Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.
