Waco, Texas — A McLennan County jailer had to undergo surgery Wednesday after officials say she was attacked by an inmate.
Tiffany Mathis, an inmate, was being escorted to the shower early Wednesday morning by a jailer. That's when authorities say Mathis broke away and took off running. The jailer managed to catch Mathis and after a brief scuffle, she was able to restrain the inmate.
Officials say the jailer suffered a broken leg and torn meniscus from the altercation. Mathis will face additional charges for the incident.
