Inmate Cited for Attack on Lincoln Correctional Officers
An inmate at the Lancaster County Jail has been cited for assaulting to correctional officers Saturday, according to Lincoln police.
Police Capt. David Beggs says two guards were walking 26-year-old Justin Bolinger back to his cell following visitation hours Saturday evening when the attack happen. Officials say Bolinger refused to turn towards the direction of his cell, saying he wanted to go the opposite way towards the showers.
Beggs says an officer stood in Bolinger's way, and Bolinger proceeded to hit and scratch the officers, choking one as well.
The guards, ages, 57 and 28, were left with scratches on their necks. They eventually got Bolinger back to his cell, and he was cited on suspicion of two counts of assault by a confined person and one count of strangulation.
