NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - After Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office jailers discovered that a 21-year-old woman that was trying to smuggle in a controlled substance, Dominique Samone Macon allegedly grabbed the bottled PCP and splashed it on a jailer's face and arm Wednesday.
Macon, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on three third-degree felony charges of attempting to bring a prohibited substance into a correctional facility, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, and assaulting a public servant. No bail has been set at this time.
According to the incident report that appeared on the NCSO Website, the incident happened at 9:01 p.m. Wednesday. Nacogdoches Police officers brought Macon to the jail to be booked in on a misdemeanor warrant from another agency. Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges said the NPD officers found PCP in Macon's possession and suspected that she had more of the controlled substance hidden on her person.
A female jailer conducted a strip search on Macon when she got to the jail. Bridges said a small bottle of a substance believed to be PCP was found hidden inside Macon's pants. At that point, Macon started fighting with the jailer and managed to throw the contents of the bottle at the jailer. Some of the liquid went into the jailer's mouth and eyes.
"Macon was quickly subdued without further incident," Bridges said in a press release.
The jailer was taken to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital for treatment and was later released.
