PRESTONSBURG — A fight between two inmates at the Floyd County Detention Center last week resulted in one having to have a portion of his ear reattached, while the other now faces a new felony charge.
The incident happened July 22. According to an arrest warrant, Brian Caudill, 46, of Harrodsburg, was allegedly involved in an altercation with another inmate, Jason Boyd, when he allegedly bit off part of Boyd’s ear.
Assistant County Attorney Tyler Green said the incident was captured on a security camera. He said the tape appears to show the two arguing and fighting right before the ear injury.
Green said Boyd was taken to the hospital and that the removed portion of ear was surgically reattached.
Caudill now faces a new felony charge of second-degree assault for the alleged attack. He continues to be held at the jail.
