One of the men accused in the Good Friday shootings faces another charge after he is accused of striking a detention officer.

Jacob England was arrested on a count of assault and battery of a detention officer on Thursday. According to the arrest report, England was being escorted back to his cell when he refused to enter. The officer tugged on his arm attempting to pull England inside the cell. The officer reported that England then violently pulled away and hit the officer on his ribs and back. The officer was then able to push England into his cell.

Earlier this year, England was arrested along with Alvin Watts on three counts of first degree murder, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and five counts under Oklahoma's hate crimes law. A total of three people were killed in the shootings. England and Watts pleaded not guilty to the crimes.

The men were originally scheduled to be in court in late October, but the State requested additional time to review the case for the death penalty. Their next court appearance is scheduled for November 26.
