Somerset inmate charged with throwing feces at guard
A Somerset prison inmate accused of throwing his feces at a corrections officer has been charged with aggravated harassment, state police at Somerset said.
The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when the guard was collecting used dishes from a restricted housing unit at the State Correctional Institution-Somerset.
Inmates in this unit typically slide their dishes through a hole in their cells, police said.
But instead, Elizah Christopher McDonald, 21, threw a cup of his feces at the officer, then tossed his food tray through the slot, police said. Trooper Todd Sherle said the officer, who was not injured, "walked away, reported it to his supervisor, changed his clothes and showered about three times."
