The crew told police Basco was "out of it" and wasn't causing any issues until they tightened the blood pressure cuff on him, which is when he panicked and attempted to bite a paramedic. When the other paramedic tried to help, Basco started kicking both of them.

One paramedic was bruised on her back and the other received internal rib contusions.
