Jared Remy, the son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, allegedly assaulted another inmate at the Middlesex County Jail where he awaits trial on charges of killing his girlfriend in August, the Middlesex sheriff's office said Friday night.
Remy, 35, of Waltham, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon Thursday, the sheriff’s office said. The inmate Remy allegedly assaulted was a fellow pretrial detainee at the jail in Cambridge.
Remy is slated to be arraigned on the new charge April 24 in Cambridge District Court. He was moved to an isolated area of the jail after the alleged assault, according to the statement.
A spokesman for the sheriff’s office would not give further details on the episode Friday night.
Remy is awaiting trial on a count of murder and five other charges in the killing of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, 27, on Aug. 15. His trial is scheduled for October.
