DEPUTIES: Spitting Leads To Arrest In Beaufort County

An inmate is facing more charges after deputies say he spit on a detention officer's face and back.

On Tuesday, Beaufort County deputies say Detention Officer Richard Crandall was delivering linens to the cell blocks when the assault took place. The 23-year-old Jackson was being held in the jail awaiting transfer to the Department of Correction after a recent conviction.

Bond on the new charges was set at $6,000.
