Inmates who spit are charged with assault

A representative for the jail said they will not tolerate any assault on detention officers, even spitting

The Tennessean

SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. — A representative for the Sumner County Jail said they will not tolerate any assault on detention officers, even spitting.

Bobby James Garrison II, 35, of Airport Road in Gallatin, was charged last Saturday with assault after spitting on a detention officer’s hand.

The arrest affidavit says that "while trying to restrain Garrison's legs to the restraint chair for the second time, Bobby purposely spit” on the guard’s hand.

Garrison was in jail on a public intoxication charge. According to the affidavit for that arrest, Garrison was found in the driver's seat of a black SUV in front of a building on Airport Road without any pants on, "sitting on a pile of empty beer cans."
