TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — An inmate at the Tippecanoe County Jail faces new charges following several incidents with corrections officers.

Twenty-seven-year-old Scott Barry is charged with three counts of battery by bodily waste.

Barry has several previous convictions for charges including strangulation, theft and drug possession.
