Inmate argument led to DOC officer's assaultWritten by Donna De Jesus
Guam - On Wednesday, Joshua Meno was charged with assaulting a corrections officer while he was being supervised during “fresh air activities.”
In a magistrate report, Meno was said to have gotten into a heated argument with another detainee. When the argument escalated, Meno was told by the DOC officer to “proceed to the yard,” which Meno refused to do. Documents add that Meno suddenly attacked the officer, punching him at least three times in the face.
The other inmate told police that Meno also attempted to attack him when the corrections officer called for help. Both the other inmate and the corrections officer received medical attention. According to the report, Meno later gave an apology note to the inmate he argued with, saying “I’m sorry for crossing the line with you. Can we please squash this?”
Meno was charged with assault on a police officer as a third-degree felony and assault as a misdemeanor.
