YORK, S.C. (AP) - Three inmates have been arrested after a guard was attacked at a South Carolina jail.

A police report says a guard at the York County jail was shoved and threatened about 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

The report says 41-year-old David Easter of Rock Hill shoved the guard. The guard and another officer subdued Easter, but several other inmates then gathered around the confrontation.

Easter is charged with assault and battery. He had been in jail since January.

Twenty-two-year-old Harold Miles of Rock Hill is accused of throwing a chair that almost hit the officers and is charged with assault and battery. He had also been in jail since January.



Thirty-four-year-old Michael David Morgan of Smyrna is charged with threatening an officer. He had been in jail since February.
