An assault by an inmate sent a Washington County Detention Center officer to the hospital Sunday afternoon, Sheriff Charles F. Mades said.
Deputy 1st Class Tony V. Davis, who has worked at the facility since 1984, was taken to Washington County Hospital after the 3 p.m. assault, Mades said.
Late Sunday, a hospital official said Davis was still being evaluated in the emergency room.
Mades said Sunday night he did not have full details of the assault. He said more information - such as whether charges would be filed - would be available this morning.
