The female indicated that a male subject living at the residence had caused her injuries. The officers spoke to the male subject noting the male subject was "not in his right mind." The male also allegedly reported the 83 year old female to be his daughter and requested the officers and emergency workers to leave the residence. The officer noted the case was an "obvious domestic battery" but did not believe the male could be prosecuted because of his mental state.
