October 26, 2005|By ERIN CUNNINGHAM

A Maryland Correctional Training Center inmate was charged this week with assault after he allegedly punched a correctional officer.

Darrell Lee Adams, 28, whose address is listed as 18800 Roxbury Road in Hagerstown, was charged with two counts of assault on a Department of Corrections employee, according to Washington County District Court documents.

Adams was being released from prison the day of the incident, documents state. As officers removed his handcuffs so he could sign release paperwork, Adams tried to hit one of the officers, according to documents. Adams missed, but was able to strike the officer in the chest.

As he was striking the officer Adams said, "I'm not going home," documents state.
