SALISBURY — A man in jail for a felony probation violation faces a new charge of malicious conduct by a prisoner because of actions after a fight involving dozens of prisoners.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Nastasia Hubbard with malicious conduct by a prisoner because he allegedly cursed at and spit on an officer who was putting Hubbard back in his cell. Hubbard was one of the last inmates placed back in a cell after sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement officers responded to a large fight July 8 at the Rowan County Detention Center.

An officer’s leg was injured during the melee, but the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said it wasn’t hurt by an inmate.

Hubbard’s total bond is $20,000.
