Vegas Jail Guards Surprised by Bat Attack

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A police report says jail guards were surprised by the brazenness of a man accused of walking into a jail in downtown Las Vegas with an aluminum baseball bat and attacking corrections officers.

An officer involved in the Wednesday fracas later told Las Vegas police investigators that he couldn't believe 25-year-old Michael Marcel Law came into the lobby of the Clark County jail wielding a baseball bat.

Law also is accused of pulling a knife before he was subdued and arrested.

Police say one guard is recovering after being struck in the head, neck and hand.

Law also was taken to the hospital and treated for an unrelated medical issue.

He's now jailed without bail pending a Monday court appearance on attempted murder, battery and other charges.
