MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a prison nurse threatened and pulled the genitals of an inmate after accidentally giving him cigarettes and other contraband.

State Law Enforcement Division agents say they arrested 43-year-old Jennifer Scott on Monday on a charge of second-degree assault and battery more than two years after the incident.

Agents say Scott hid the contraband in sandwiches she gave to Berkeley County inmates as they took their medicine. But she accidently gave a special sandwich to the wrong inmate.

Authorities say when that inmate saw her a few days later, Scott grabbed his genitals and asked if she could do anything to make him forget the contraband. When the inmate asked her to remove her hand, she yanked his genitals, hurting him.

It wasn’t known if Scott had a lawyer.
