Inmate spits on corrections officer

Became upset when he was denied "using the phone at his leisure"

JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers say they are forwarding harassment charges against an inmate for allegedly spitting on a corrections officer at Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau.

Troopers said in a dispatch that the 35-year-old inmate spat on the officer three times during an encounter at the jail. Troopers responded to the incident at about 12:12 p.m. Wednesday.

Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Megan Peters identified the inmate as Terry Joe Ross. Peters said Ross became upset after he was denied the ability to “use the phone at his leisure.”

Ross has several prior convictions, and the Department of Corrections could not confirm what sentence Ross is currently serving at LCCC.
