A Fayette County man who police said identified himself as a "mad scientist" before he pushed a nurse is accused of aggravated assault.

Jerry Wingrove, 37, of 23 Snyder Terrace is charged by Uniontown Hospital police with aggravated assault, defiant trespass and harassment.

In a criminal complaint, police said a nurse approached Wingrove at Uniontown Hospital at 12:15 p.m. Tuesday because Wingrove was looking at computer screens containing patient information.

When confronted, Wingrove declared he was a mad scientist assigned to check the hospital's computers, according to the complaint. Police allege he shoved a nurse when he was asked to leave.

Wingrove faces a preliminary hearing 8:45 a.m. May 1 before Uniontown District Judge Michael Metros. He is free on $5,000 unsecured bond.
