FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The sheriff’s office in Cass County says an inmate is facing an additional charge after he injured a deputy while he was being booked into the jail.

Authorities on Tuesday said inmate Michael Jonathon Cox head-butted deputy Bennett Strege on Sunday. Cox has been charged with simple assault of a peace officer in connection with the incident at the jail.

Strege sustained minor injuries.

The sheriff’s office says Cox originally had been arrested on a terrorizing charge. Authorities say Cox was not being cooperative when he arrived at the jail and refused to comply with the orders of the arresting officers.
