By News Department

RICHLAND COUNTY, S.C. (WOLO) - A Correctional officer is arrested for assault and battery on an inmate at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

Earlier this month, Richland County deputies say 37-year-old Robin Smith entered the victim's cell, and after the individual didn't comply with instructions, they say he kicked the victim repeatedly in the head and side.

Smith is also accused of putting his boot on the victim's head and neck while pulling the victim's arm in the opposite direction.

That victim is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital.
