Darius Hinkle said the nurses who helped him work at Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville.
Hinkle admitted he does not have a valid driver’s license and said he was speeding on the way to the hospital on Thursday, but said he did it because his 1-year-old daughter was choking on a penny.
By the time Hinkle arrived at the hospital, more than a handful of police officers with different agencies were behind him and took him into custody.
The 1-year-old's mother Donecia Pittman said when she arrived at the jail a woman she didn't recognize was there to bond Hinkle out. That’s when she learned a group of nurses chipped in money to pay his bond.
