A Letcher County Jail inmate was charged with third-degree assault after she allegedly injured a deputy jailer.
An arrest citation says Sabrina Brock, 19, of 354 Pert Creek Road, had inmate Bessie Smith by the throat when Deputy Jailers Joseph Pease and Lisa Pease answered Smith’s call for help and entered cell 104 at 1:05 p.m. on Oct. 18.
The deputy jailers pulled Brock off of Smith and had control of her arms, but when Joseph Pease grabbed Brock’s ankles she used the back of her head to hit Lisa Pease in the mouth, the citation says.
Lisa Pease received cuts to her gums and had private property valued at more than $400 destroyed during the attack, the citation says.
Brock remains housed in the Letcher County Jail.
