Roger Barnett Strikes Again

This latest incident comes on the heels of his previous tantrum when he detained a wayward hunting party of Mexican Americans on his property - accusing them of being "illegals"
The most recent incident occurred on Dec. 30 at about 10:30 a.m. at milepost 394 on Arizona 80 east of Douglas, according to a report filed by the Douglas Fire Department. A Douglas Fire Department ambulance crew was at the scene responding to a call from the U.S. Border Patrol about a male illegal entrant in need of medical assistance, the report says.

While trying to transport the man to the Southern Arizona Medical Center in Douglas, a man who identified himself as Barnett flagged the ambulance down, the report says.

Barnett then tried to force his way into the back of the ambulance where medics were attending the man and became aggressive with the medic when he wasn't allowed in. Barnett said he was trying to see the shoes of the patient, the report says. He attempted to get in the ambulance three times before they pulled away, the report says.

Unhinged would be a polite way of characterizing his demeanor.
