An inmate at the Floyd County Jail is facing charges of simple assault, terroristic threats and acts, obstruction of law enforcement, and unlawful acts of violence in a penal institution following a scuffle with deputies Monday.

According to jail records, 23-year old Dustin Wade Smith attempted to bite the leg of one of the deputies.

He also allegedly made verbal threats and resisted the jail officers.

Smith has been in the Floyd County Jail since being charged in connection with a burglary and arson at the Rozy Food Mart in Cave Spring that occurred on May 21, 2019.
