Correctional officers attacked

(Anthony Martin went to prison for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer)….That was in 1999.

Saturday, he did it again. This time while in prison and his victims were two correctional officers. Officials at the Calipatria State Prison Say Martin suddenly turned and hit a correctional officer in the face, knocking him to the floor. The inmate was holding a metal chair over the officer when another correctional officer approached. Martin threw the chair at that officer, hitting him in the legs and arm. Martin was soon subdued by other prison staff. He was placed in administrative segregation. The two correctional officers were taken to an area hospital. The first officer suffered a split lip and broken teeth. That officer will require specialized surgery to remove teeth embedded in his palate. The second officer suffered bruises to his legs and arms. Martin had been serving an 11-year sentence.
