Inmate attacks corrections officers

by

MERRILL, Wis (WSAU)  An inmate in the Lincoln County jail attacked three corrections officers on Sunday. The inmate claimed to be suffering a medical emergency. While he was being attended to, he jumped up and attacked a female guard.

The inmate was immobilized with a taser, and was moved to a holding cell. Once there he bit another officer, and attacked a third who was removing the taser-probe.

All three corrections officers were treated at Good Samaritan Hospital in Merrill. None of the injuries are serious.

The inmate's name hasn't been released. He's a 28-year-old from Waupun in Portage County. He's being boarded out to the Lincoln County jail because of overcrowding.
