PARKLAND SHOOTER NIKOLAS CRUZ ACCUSED IN JAIL ATTACK
Nikolas Cruz attacked a jail guard, punching him
repeatedly, authorities in Florida said.
Cruz is in jail awaiting trial for the mass shooting
in Parkland in February that left 17 dead.
He has now been charged with assault, battery,
and using a taser against a law enforcement officer.
The fight happened when Sgt. Raymond Beltran
asked Cruz to stop dragging his sandals.
Instead of listening, Cruz hurled himself at
Beltran and began punching him.
Beltran eventually took Cruz into custody.
A union official said Beltran acted appropriately.
