An inmate at an East Texas jail is charged with attacking a jailer.

Officials say 58-year-old Neal Woods, already jailed on a DWI charge, assaulted a female Gregg County jailer, shoving her into a wall and then taking her canister of pepper spray.

He was restrained by other staff, and is now charged with assaulting a public servant.

Woods is being held on bonds totaling 10-thousand dollars.
