Hit on the head and gets rectal exam?

Hit on the head and gets rectal exam?: "A visit to a hospital for a bump to the head turned into a big pain in the posterior for a Brooklyn construction worker.

Brian Persaud ended up in handcuffs and under arrest when he loudly protested that doctors at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell didn't need to give him a rectal exam after a piece of wood clocked him on the forehead.

'This poor guy goes in for eight stitches and he ends up in jail,' said his lawyer, Gerard Marrone. 'He had the right to say no.'

Doctors sedated Persaud and then did the rectal exam."

"Who in the heck is the doctor to force a medical procedure on you if you're conscious?" Marrone said.

The revelation about the rectal exam set off Persaud, who smacked a doctor during a struggle and yelled, "Where I came from, you don't put anything in someone's a------!"
