An inmate at a southeast Minnesota jail squirted urine and feces at a deputy.
Olmstead County Sheriff's Captain Scott Behrns confirmed the May 9 incident to Bring Me The News, saying the suspected culprit was 25-year-old Byron Rush.
Rush is accused of filling a shampoo bottle with feces and urine, which he then squirted at the deputy while she served him a meal at the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center.
The foul mixture was sprayed onto her face and some of it got into her mouth.
She was taken to the hospital to be checked out but has no lasting damage. Behrns says they're not sure what provoked the attack.

Rush was awaiting transport to prison at the time of the incident.
He's since been transferred to MCF–St. Cloud, where he'll serve his five-year sentence for aggravated robberies at the Fairfield Inn and Suites and Sun Tan City in Rochester.
In the Sun Tan City robbery, charging documents say Rush and another man held guns to the heads of staff at the business as they were closing, pistol-whipping one of them in the head before making off with cash and a cellphone.
A Fairfield Hotel worker said he'd been robbed at gunpoint by Rush a week earlier.
He is now facing additional charges of 4th degree assault for the incident at the Olmsted County Jail.
