Authorities say an inmate at the Lawrence County Jail bit a corrections officer on the forearm and injured another during two incidents this week.

Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell said inmate Earl Bates bit an officer around 8:30 p.m. Monday as the officer was trying to remove items from his cell. Mitchell said Bates was using those items to flood his cell.
