A Kanawha County Family Court judge is facing a battery charge following an incident at a Charleston hospital.
 
 Charleston police arrested 61-year-old Mark Snyder on Monday night. He's accused of grabbing a nurse's arm and trying to drag her down a hallway at Charleston Area Medical General Hospital.
 
     A criminal complaint says the nurse told police that Snyder was upset about the care of a patient he was visiting. The complaint says Snyder refused several requests to leave and was escorted out of the hospital by a security guard.
 
     Snyder was charged with battery on health care providers and emergency medical service personnel.
 
     Snyder did not immediately return a telephone message Tuesday afternoon
