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.
Around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Bates “came out of his cell on another officer” as the officer was picking up Bates’ lunch tray, Mitchell said. He didn’t say how the officer was allegedly injured.
