A 56-year-old Naples man faces criminal charges after deputies say he caused a physical disturbance at NCH Northeast on Wednesday.

Namik Tabaku faces charges of battery on a health care worker and criminal mischief. Reports say he was at the hospital with a family member who was there receiving treatment when Tabaku became upset with the hospital staff and shoved a plexiglass partition that struck a nurse, knocked over a computer and broke the partition.

Tabaku left the hospital but was found outside by deputies. The nurse did not require medical treatment.
