The Record reports that Scott Wolfe dislocated an ankle as he tried to help hospital staffers get 29-year-old Markus Sexton under control in the emergency room at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson.

Authorities did not say what spurred the incident or why Sexton was in the hospital. It was not known Monday if he had retained a lawyer.

Wolfe, an eight-year veteran of the department, was expected to undergo surgery on his ankle. It was not known how long he would be out of work.
