A 58-year-old man was admitted after falling down a flight of concrete steps whilst drinking alcohol. On admission to the emergency department he smelt strongly of alcohol and complained of headache and neck pain. He was agitated and was attempting to climb off his trolley. He was disorientated but obeying commands (GCS E4, V4, M6), and his pupils were equal and reactive.
