A man was arrested after he ate his own feces and threw a cup of his urine on prison guards.
34-year-old Anthony Maughan of Dublin, Ireland, told police that he ate his own feces to annoy prison guards.
Maughan was locked up at the Midlands, after he was sentenced to 12 years in prison, with 4 years suspended, for robbery and attempted robbery.
Last week, he threw a tantrum and he used a cup full of urine as a weapon to assault prison officers. He has since been transferred to another prison.
Maughan was due to be released from prison next year, but he now faces additional prison time for throwing urine at the officers.
Maughan, who is a recovering drug addict, has more than 70 convictions. He was sentenced to 12 years for trying to rob a 94-year-old man and for robbing a tourist with a pair of scissors.
