ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A former north Florida prison guard has been charged with assaulting an inmate.

The Florida Department of Corrections reports that former Correctional Officer Sgt. Ricky Wilson was arrested Saturday and charged with aggravated battery and falsifying reports.

Officials say Wilson was working at the Suwannee Correctional Institution near Like Oak in January 2015 when he battered an inmate without any legal justification, resulting in injury. Wilson resigned earlier this month before the completion of an investigation by the Office of Inspector General.

Wilson was being held at the Suwannee County Jail. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
