MCALESTER, Okla. (AP) - A man on probation after serving prison time in McAlester has been accused of assaulting a corrections officer at a local restaurant.

The McAlester News-Capital (https://bit.ly/1SwG7Nq ) reports that 35-year-old Cerrone Lemont Jackson is charged with battery/assault and battery on a police officer.

Court documents show that McAlester police officer Lloyd London was dispatched to the restaurant on U.S. Highway 69 last week. London says Jackson hit the corrections officer, causing injury to the officer’s mouth, lip and back of the head after being knocked down.

The corrections officer had been eating with other employees at the time of the incident.

Jackson told London that the officers had assaulted him while he was in custody.

Court records show he is being held on a $30,000 bond.
