The Globe reports that 38-year-old Nicholas Bryson, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is charged with felony fourth-degree assault of a corrections officer.

The complaint says corrections staff entered Bryson's cell Wednesday after he was uncooperative about moving to another jail pod. Authorities say Bryson pushed one of the corrections officers to the floor, where the two of them wrestled. The jailer was getting up when Bryson allegedly bit through the officer's glove.

The officer was treated for a bite wound and knee pain from the altercation.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Bryson.
