An Erie County Corrections Officer is recovering from a head injury after being attacked by an inmate.

Officials say Dayshawn Hopper attacked the officer. He was immediately restrained and placed in a secure area.

Patrol Deputies arrested Hopper and charged him with assault and obstruction of government administration.

Hopper was serving a three-month in the correctional facility after his conviction for introducing contraband into a prison.

No word yet on if he will be facing additional jail time.
