A Rancho Santa Margarita man asked for help from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department late Tuesday because he needed assistance with his son.
The resident wanted to take the 17-year-old boy, who was described as being 5 feet 10 inches and 255 pounds, to UC Irvine Medical Center.
According to the OCSD blotter, the boy cut himself on some glass, was possibly high on drugs and has a bad and violent temper. The boy turned out to be too big of a handful for his father and refused medical aid, prompting the call for police assistance.
OCSD deputies responded to the dispute at the Mistletoe residence, and transported the boy to Mission Hospital to be self-admitted.
The call for help was made at 9:56 p.m.
