CINCINNATI (AP) - An imprisoned Kentucky man accused of punching his appellate attorney during a meeting faces new charges for the alleged attack in Cincinnati.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters says Tony Pippin, of Covington, was indicted on counts including felonious assault, escape and retaliation.

He’s accused of attacking his attorney Nov. 3 as they met in a professional area at the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Deters says Pippin removed his handcuffs using a piece of metal and punched his attorney several times before being subdued by staff. Deters says the man suffered a concussion.

He didn’t elaborate on any suspected motive.

No attorney was listed for the 42-year-old Pippin in records on the new case.

He’s serving a 24-year sentence in a rape case and has rape, assault and burglary charges pending.
