Bay County Arrest

A Bay County corrections officer is on the other side of the law.

Christopher Michael Byrd was arrested for allegedly having sex with a female inmate on Saturday.

Byrd is a nurse at the Bay County Jail Annex where the incident allegedly occurred.

Police say Byrd asked a corrections officer to bring the inmate into the medical unit where he allegedly had sex with her.

Authorities say Byrd told the corrections officer a manager had cleared the inmate to be in the medical unit with no supervision.

Byrd remains in the Bay County Jail under a five-thousand dollars bond.
