After being asked to leave the hospital for aggressive behavior, 34-year-old Nicole Clelland allegedly backed a car into the revolving doors at a Pittsburgh hospital.

A woman has been jailed on charges that she crashed a stolen car into the entrance of a Pittsburgh hospital moments after she was asked to leave the emergency room for being aggressive to hospital staff.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 34-year-old Nicole Clelland, of Crafton, who's charged with theft, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and other charges.

Police say four people had to dive out of the way when Clelland backed the car into a revolving door entrance at UPMC Mercy Hospital about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say the car belonged to someone delivering something to the hospital or dropping someone off.

Clelland's mother, Martha Meyer, told WPXI-TV that her daughter was not in her "right state of mind" Tuesday and had swallowed some batteries, razor blades and a pen before the incident.
