Deputy Attacked By Parolee in Jail, Taken to Grossmont Hospital

The deputy suffered an "obvious dislocation of his left ankle" and was later taken to Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa for treatment.

A parolee was behind bars Tuesday on suspicion of assaulting a deputy while being booked into jail for violating parole in another case, authorities said.

Jason Robert Cross, 41, was taken into custody Monday night on suspicion of parole violation and booked into San Diego Central Jail, according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Alan Kneeshaw.

While being searched in a cell at the downtown San Diego jail, Cross attacked a deputy, the lieutenant said in a statement.

The deputy suffered an "obvious dislocation of his left ankle" and was later taken to Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa for treatment, Kneeshaw said.

Other deputies rushed to control Cross and forced him to the ground in the hallway outside the jail cell, Kneeshaw said, noting the jail was put on lockdown for a half-hour following the incident.

Details about Cross' alleged parole violation were not immediately released.
