A Cedar Rapids woman has been accused of attempting to choke a victim.

Patricia Wagner, 59, was charged Sunday with assault with intent of injury of a peace officer or others.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, police officials responded to reports of a female “out of control” in the emergency room. Police officials spoke with staff, and the hospital officials said Wagner had pushed the power of attorney for her sick mother.

When the victim interviewed her, Wagner allegedly grabbed him around the throat and neck yelling, “I’ll sue you; I’ll kill you.” The complaint said her grip loosened only when emergency-room staff told her they were calling the police.

Assault with intent of injury of a peace officer/others is a Class-D felony.
