An inmate at the LaRue County Detention Center is facing additional charges after police say he assaulted another inmate.
Michael Ryan Yanez, 23, formerly of Glasgow, is accused of striking another inmate in the face numerous times, saying he was going to “knock him out,” according to police.
He was charged with second-degree assault.
Chief Deputy Jailer Rick Benningfield said the inmates were in the same cell when the altercation occurred. Jail deputies “broke it up,” he said.
