An inmate at the Jackson County jail has been charged with assault after he allegedly threw a trash can at one corrections officer and injured another who tried to restrain the Kansas City man.
Robert Ramsey-Wilson, 24, is charged with third-degree assault following an incident that happened last Thursday. According to court documents and KSHB-TV News, a guard told investigators that Ramsey-Wilson walked over to his desk, became irate because he couldn't use the phone, pushed over a computer and then grabbed a plastic trash can and threw it in the guard's direction.
A second guard came and tried to calm Ramsey-Wilson down, and when he grabbed his arm Ramsey-Wilson jerked away, causing the second guard to hit his knee on the wall and then the ground. According to court documents, the second guard was taken to the hospital with a fractured kneecap.
The next day, Ramsey-Wilson told investigators he knocked over the computer and threw the trash can and said, “I never should have resisted.” He said when he saw the second guard on ground and holding his knee he placed himself against the wall.
According to court documents, the incident was captured on video inside the jail.
