Yikes! Sword-Wielding Physician Tries To Break Into Neighbor's Home
Dr. Joseph Galdun
A St. Vincent Health physician woke up on the wrong side of the bed and the wrong side of the law. Dr. Joseph Galdun tried breaking into his neighbor's north side home on Crystal River Drive around 8:00 a.m. while wielding a sword. The homeowner, Tony Waugh, struck the 44-year old Galdun with a golf club, causing minor injuries to him. Police suspected that Galdun was either intoxicated or suffering from some type of neurological disorder. Galdun was taken into police custody after being treated for minor injuries at the scene. Formal charges have not yet been filed against him. Galdun's Linkedin page indicates that he's been employed by St. Vincent Health as a cardiology specialist since 2001 after earning his medical degree from IU School of Medicine in Indianapolis. Galdun, who has held a license since 1998, has faced no prior disciplinary actions according to state records.
