Inmates Accused Of Assaulting Nurses at Iowa Medical And Classification Center
CORALVILLE, Iowa -- Two Iowa Medical and Classification Center inmates are accused of assaulting nurses on the same day in October in what appear to be separate incidents.
According to Coralville police criminal complaints, both assaults occurred on Oct. 18. Police said at 10:35 a.m., Christopher A. Kinkennon headbutted a nurse in the chest. Kinkennon then tried to throw a punch at the nurse, police said.
An hour later, at 11:40 a.m., police said another inmate - 36-year-old Oliver E. Guertin, Jr. - grabbed a nurse, put him in a headlock and began to hit the nurse in the back of the head.
Both inmates were charged with assault on a peace officer or other. Kinkennon also faces an additional charge of assault causing bodily injury for an incident on Oct. 23 during which he allegedly assaulted a fellow inmate.
