55-year-old Russell Sanderson was arrested for the ninth time since June 3 and charged with theft over $2,500.

For the past several weeks he has been arrested, released and arrested again for trespassing at the ER and numerous businesses he has been barred from.

On Monday he was arrested in the ER parking lot when an officer saw him pulling on car door handles. He got out of jail Wednesday.

In another incident, police went back to the ER when staff said he was back and refused to leave unless he got a shot of milk and a shot of morphine.
