MERRILL, Wis. -

A 28 year old Waupun man being held in the Lincoln County Jail could face charges for allegedly attacking corrections officers.

WSAW-TV reports corrections officers entered the cell block Sunday morning after it was reported that the inmate had suffered a seizure. As they attended to him, the inmate jumped up and struck one officer. As the inmate was being removed to a holding cell, he again became combative and bit a second officer. A third officer was injured while removing a Taser probe.

All three corrections officers and the inmate were checked at a local hospital.

Investigators will view video of the incident before making a report to the district attorney.

The inmate is being housed in Lincoln County due to overcrowding at the Portage County Jail.
