January 1, Rep. Ronny Jackson Briefly Detained at Rodeo During Medical Emergency



1972: US Senate ratifies the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union to limit the use of missile systems capable of defending against missile-delivered nuclear weapons.

A weekend rodeo in Texas took an unexpected turn when Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, found himself briefly detained by law enforcement as he attempted to assist in a medical emergency, his office confirmed.

Jackson, who is also an emergency room-trained physician, was attending the rodeo on Saturday when he was alerted by someone in the crowd to a 15-year-old girl experiencing a medical crisis.

According to Jackson’s office, a nurse who happened to be related to the girl was already administering help when Jackson arrived on the scene.

His office stated, “When Jackson asked if she needed help, she said yes, noting there were no uniformed EMS providers on the scene at that time.”

In the ensuing confusion of a “very loud and chaotic environment,” local law enforcement briefly detained the congressman, preventing him from continuing his assistance to the girl in distress.

Jackson was promptly released once law enforcement recognized that he was offering professional medical aid.

Jackson’s office took the opportunity to emphasize that the congressman remained seated in the stands throughout the entire rodeo and did not partake in any drinking.

This statement, while seemingly unrelated to the incident, may be linked to a 2021 Pentagon inspector general’s report.

The report alleged “inappropriate conduct” on Jackson’s part, including claims that he consumed alcohol while on duty during his tenure as the White House’s top physician, which he fervently denied.

As for the incident at the rodeo, the Carson County sheriff’s office has yet to provide an official comment.

County Sheriff Tam Terry did confirm to The Texas Tribune that an individual was “temporarily detained” during a concert at the rodeo on Saturday night.

The Sheriff’s department is currently “reviewing the incident” but has not released any names pending the completion of the review.

Rep. Jackson is a three-term White House medical unit veteran, having served under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.

In 2019, he was appointed by Trump as chief medical adviser and assistant to the president.

Jackson was elected to Congress in 2020 and successfully secured re-election in 2022.

He remains one of Trump’s most staunch supporters in Congress.

    One simple question: ‘Are you a medical professional’ and all this would have been avoided.
