Rodney Hogan, age 30 of Pocahontas was charged In Craighead County with 2nd degree battery after a judge found probable cause to charge him.
The charge stems from an incident on Thursday when Jonesboro police were called to a local hospital after reports of an aggressive male.
When officers arrived they found hospital employees attempting to restrain Hogan. A nurse suffered scratches and a bite from the suspect leaving visible marks.
Hogan was arrested and released after posting a $7,500 bond and given a December court date.
