A Mount Healthy man appeared in court Monday on charges he attacked and hurt a Hamilton County sheriff's deputy at the county jail.

Court records state Steven Branam, 23, refused to go into his cell for medical distribution and fought with Deputy Joshua Holden on Jan. 19.

The deputy suffered several ankle fractures that required him to undergo surgery.

Branam was charged Saturday with felonious assault. He has been at the jail since last year on charges of carrying concealed weapons and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.
