CRESTVIEW – An Okaloosa County Jail inmate was charged with battery after another inmate accused him of coming into his cell and kicking him in the back.
The 38-year-old Mobile man knew that the victim had had back surgery before he kicked him, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
The suspect allegedly made threats to do the same again if his demands were not met.
A witness confirmed that the victim was asleep when the attack occurred.
The suspect said that he’d kicked the victim’s bunk out of anger, but not his back.
