An inmate at the Floyd County Jail, Rodney Ryan Devoe Mathis, 34 of Lindale, is facing additional charges this week after reports said he punched a man in the face.

Reports added that Mathis struck the victim with such force that he fell to the ground.

After falling, Mathis is then accused of repeatedly striking his face, which resulted in visible injuries.

Mathis was originally booked in the Jail in late January on a failure to appear warrant.

He is now charged with simple battery and unlawful acts of violence in a penal institution.
