DECATUR — Police reports say a female inmate at the Macon County Jail was arrested on a preliminary charge of aggravated battery after she threw a cup of urine and toilet paper at a female correctional officer.

A sworn affidavit from the Macon County Sheriff’s Office said the assault happened on the evening of Oct. 12. The female officer is quoted as telling deputies the 22-year-old inmate had repeatedly threatened her by saying “I’m going to get you, I’m going to kill you” before hurling the cup out of a cell door while dinner was being served, striking the officer in the chest and soaking her work shirt.

In addition to the new preliminary charge, jail records show the inmate is being held on unspecified federal charges.

All preliminary charges are subject to review by the state attorney’s office.
