Inmate charged with throwing bodily fluids
WAYNESBURG – An inmate at SCI-Greene has been charged for allegedly throwing urine and feces on a nurse and corrections officer last Oct. 19.
According to a criminal complaint filed Friday before Greene County Magisterial District Judge Glenn Bates, inmate Perry Lee Frezzel, 46, formerly of Uniontown, became upset about his medication and food. Charges against him include aggravated harassment by prisoner and harassment.
SCI-Greene nurse Mary Fleming told police she was dispensing medication to Frezzel when he started complaining about the dosage. Frezzel allegedly turned away from Fleming and corrections officer Matthew Yeardie and said, “I got it right here.” Fleming said she thought Frezzel was referring to some type of documentation regarding his medication, but told police Frezzel turned back toward her and Yeardie and threw a cup of urine and feces at them. Fleming said she was struck on the sleeve of her jacket and her pant leg with the mixture.
Yeardie, who accompanied Fleming as she passed out medication, told police Fleming hit him on the right side, near his arm with the bodily fluids.
Police said Frezzel told them he remembered throwing a cup of toilet water at Yeardie and hitting Fleming by accident. He said he did not mean to hit Fleming and apologized to her, according to the complaint. Police said Frezzel claimed someone was altering his medication and food and Yeardie wouldn’t do anything about it.
Frezzel is serving a sentence of 25 to 50 years for the July 23, 2012, robbery of the Texaco along Route 40 in Redstone Township, Fayette County.
