MILTON, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Santa Rosa County prison
inmate stabbed a corrections officer.
According to a Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman, 31-year-old guard Andrew Parrott was stabbed by 46-year-old inmate John Souter.
Parrott was taken to a hospital to be treated for a half-inch-deep wound to the chest.
Parrot was injured when he and other officers went into a cell to break up a fight between Souter and another inmate.
Souter is serving time on charges that include robbery, burglary, escape, aggravated battery and motor vehicle theft.
No charges have been filed in the stabbing, but the Department
of Corrections will forward the results of its investigation to the State Attorney's Office.
