An Arkansas community corrections center inmate has been charged with aggravated assault in Miller County.  Guards observed 44 year old Jason Koerth beating on the walls and windows of his cell and shouting racial slurs at an officer who apparently had urine on his arms and legs.  Koerth was allegedly holding a styrofoam cup which he had used to soak the officer.  Because the incident occurred on prison property, Arkansas State Police investigated the case. Koerth was sentenced last year for multiple counts of failing to appear in court on felony charges, burglary and theft in Pope County.
