Tompkins County (WENY) - Jamel Booker, the man convicted of shooting an Ithaca police officer last fall was arrested once again, just one day after his trial ended. This time, for assaulting a corrections officer while in jail. Tompkins County Sheriff's office says 23-year-old Booker hurt a correction officer during an alleged altercation in the Tompkins County Jail. Booker is now charged with second degree assault on top of the seven counts earlier this month for shooting officer Anthony Augustine. As we reported, the jury failed to reach a verdict on the charge of attempted murder.
