CHICAGO (AP) - A maximum-security inmate in Chicago has been charged for a second time within days for allegedly attacking a correctional deputy.

A Friday statement from the Cook County Sheriff’s Office says that 26-year-old Vermon Patterson threw feces at a deputy in a showering area on Aug. 6. He was accused of similar behavior just four days earlier, when he also allegedly punched a guard.

The statement says Patterson has been in the county jail since December of last year on a charge of home invasion with a firearm.

He’s charged with aggravated battery in both cases. If convicted, he could lose pretrial credit for time served in addition to any other sentences imposed.

Friday’s statement didn’t include a name for an attorney for Patterson.
