A motions hearing for a man who faces charges of first-degree assault, using a handgun and other crimes was postponed Monday after he allegedly caused a morning attack at the Washington County Detention Center.

Jermaine Jackson is an "extraordinarily disruptive" inmate and officials decided not to transport him Monday morning after the alleged attack, Deputy State's Attorney Joseph Michael said.

Jackson, 27, of 967 Monet Drive, was charged in connection with a Nov. 16, 2006, incident during which a family was threatened in a dispute over stolen cocaine, according to the charging document.

Police found a .22-caliber handgun in the box springs of a bed and 15 cartridges of ammunition after they responded to a call Nov. 16 at 1:38 p.m. in the 500 block of Lynnhaven Drive, according to the charging document. People at the apartment told police that Jackson pointed the gun at a woman and demanded she return cocaine she had stolen, according to the document.

Jackson also punched the victim and threatened to hurt her grandmother, and took money from another victim, the document alleges.

During a search of Jackson, police found two bags containing cocaine, according to the document.
