A Maine State Prison guard is accused of assaulting an inmate.
54-year-old Captain David Cutler of Appleton was arrested Wednesday and charged with assault.
Authorities say Cutler assaulted 36-year-old inmate Renardo Williams at the prison in Warren on Christmas Eve, while Renardo was handcuffed.
Williams is serving fifteen years for drug dealing.
An official with the NAACP says Williams, who is black, did nothing to provoke the attack other than to ask why black inmates were treated differently in the prison.
