CLAYTON, N.M. (KRQE) – An inmate is racking up more charges after State Police say he attacked a corrections officer while in jail.

When the officer tried to get him to return, Hirschfeld allegedly punched him in the head. A scuffle broke out before the corrections response team moved in.

Hirschfeld is currently serving time on stolen vehicle and gun charges.
