PENDLETON, Ind. (AP) - An inmate at the Pendleton Correctional Facility in Indiana faces charges after fecal matter was thrown at corrections officers in separate incidents.

The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports that a 35-year-old inmate was charged with felony battery by bodily waste.

According to court documents, an officer was struck in the face, mouth and left side of his body by the material on Feb. 4 while walking past an inmate's cell. Fecal matter also was thrown on a second officer. An officer also was struck by fecal matter on Oct. 26.

A second inmate, 22-year-old Levi Salyer, faces charges after an officer was spat on in November at the prison's urgent care unit.
