Officials say Love became enraged with a fellow inmate who was using his tablet. As a result, Love allegedly stabbed the inmate in the throat and attempted to stab him in the eye.

The incident led investigators to charge Jordan Love with two counts of Attempted Assault (Felony), one count of Menacing (Misdemeanor) and one count of possession of a weapon (Felony). Officials say he was arraigned by Judge Michael Misiaszek.

Love was being held at the Madison County Jail on other unrelated charges during the time of the attack. Love will return to court at a later date to answer this most recent charge.
