Liquid attack results in inmate facing assault charge

SAFFORD — A Graham County Jail inmate is facing an additional charge after getting a fellow inmate wet.

Graham County Sheriff’s deputies interviewed the victim, who said Charles Dankworth filled a bag with urine, placed it under the victim’s door, and stepped on the bag, splashing the urine in the victim’s cell and on the victim’s legs.

Deputies interviewed Dankworth, who admitted to filling a bag and stepping on it to splash the victim, but said it was water, not urine. Security footage confirmed Dankworth’s statement.

However, the victim said he wished to press charges and Dankworth was booked for assault.
