Michelle Meeker was a nurse at a nursing home in Carbondale, Colorado called Heritage Park Care Center. She was working last October when a man with a GUN busted in, took her hostage, and forced her into a back room.
The good news? It was just a training drill, and he was a police officer. The bad news? No one told Michelle that ahead of time.
While she was being held hostage, the guy told her he was a cop . . . but Michelle didn't believe him. She begged him not to hurt her or kill her, and told him she had a young child at home.
When the drill was over, she finally believed he was a cop . . . but the damage was done. She was so traumatized she wound up quitting.
Now she's suing the nursing home for damages. She didn't say how much she wants in the lawsuit . . . so that will probably be up to a jury to figure out.
The police department made SURE to point out they shouldn't be a part of the lawsuit . . . a spokesman says they agreed to help but it was the nursing home's job to alert their staff. (Huffington Post)
