A 21-year-old Pierce County Jail inmate was charged with felony harassment Thursday for allegedly threatening a corrections officer that refused to give the inmate a second lunch.
The inmate pleaded not guilty to the charge and was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He was already in jail on charges of first-degree attempted rape, first-degree robbery and indecent liberties, according to court records.
The incident happened Monday. Prosecutors said the inmate became loud after being refused a second lunch and repeatedly threatened to kill the corrections officer.
