CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

A Crockett man who authorities say threw urine at a jailer at the Houston County Jail in April has been ordered to get tested for mental competency.

Vincent Johnson was already in jail for three misdemeanor charges when a detention officer said he walked by the cell and opened a small door to send food through to Johnson. Johnson allegedly used a cup to throw urine on the officer, getting the liquid in the officer's mouth and eyes.

Once Johnson is declared mentally competent, a date can be set for him to enter a plea or go to trial.

Chief Deputy GP Shearer said the jailer is undergoing testing to be sure he did not contract any diseases.
