One inmate and two guards at a juvenile prison in South Carolina have been charged with assault.
The State Law Enforcement Division said Tuesday that 17-year-old Evens Pierre put a rock inside a sock and hit an officer in the head with it on June 3 at the juvenile prison in Columbia.
Later that day, state police say two other guards 42-year-old Clarence Frazier of Hopkins and 35-year-old Damieon Moody of Cayce attacked Pierre in his cell.
Frazier and Moody are also charged with misconduct in office.
They were no longer listed on the Richland County jails website, and it was not immediately clear if they or Pierre had attorneys.
