A Coralville inmate was charged last month after allegedly throwing a cup of urine at a correctional officer.

Andrew J. Cole, 21, was charged Jan. 8 with inmate assault with bodily fluids, according to police reports.

The complaint said Coralville police were dispatched to the Iowa Medical & Classification Center Dec. 17, 2010, to address an assault.

Upon arrival, a correctional officer said Cole threw a cup of urine at him, the complaint said.

Under Miranda, the defendant admitted to relieving himself into a cup and throwing it at the correctional officer, police said.

According to online court documents, Cole was serving time for several burglary charges in Linn County following incidents in 2008.

Inmate assault is a Class D felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $7,500 fine.
