Misconduct in Jail

Two inmates at the Saline County Jail are now facing additional charges after two unrelated incidents this week.

According to Lt. Mike Smith with the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, a male inmate verbally threatened a corrections officer on Tuesday evening while being served dinner.

Smith says the inmate then drenched the officer with a cup of orange juice.

On Wednesday afternoon four corrections officers were moving an inmate into a new cell when he threw a cup of urine at the officers, hitting all four.

Both inmates are facing new charges of battery against a law enforcement officer.

Names of the inmates and jail staff were not released.
