The man charged with biting Meridian Township police officers and attacking an Ingham County deputy has been found not competent to stand trial for now. Doctors at the Center for Forensic Psychiatry in Saline found Ronald Ruhl made that decision after examining Ronald Ruhl Thursday. His lawyer tells wilx.com he'll get treatment in the hopes he'll eventually become competent. Ruhl is facing two separate cases, one for the December 8 fight with police while wandering through an apartment complex naked and one for the incident with the deputy at Sparrow Hospital a few days later. The judge in the first case had already scheduled a review hearing for March 24. Ruhl's attorney Nick Bostic will ask the judge overseeing the second case to do the same. Mr. Bostic thanked the Ingham County prosecutor's and sheriff's offices as well as Sparrow staff for moving things along and getting his client into treatment so quickly. We'll let you know when a final competency decision is made.
