Jared Remy, the son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, allegedly attacked a fellow inmate with a chair and bar of soap during an incident last week that has prompted new charges against him, a law enforcement official said.
The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter, had no other details of the alleged assault, including the extent of the other inmate’s injuries.
On Friday, the Middlesex sheriff’s office confirmed that Remy, 35, allegedly attacked another inmate the day before at the Cambridge jail where Remy is awaiting trial on charges of murder in the death of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, on Aug. 15. However, the sheriff’s office did not specify the type of weapon used in the alleged jailhouse assault.
Remy is scheduled to be arraigned April 24 in Cambridge District Court on nine assault charges stemming from the incident.
His lawyer, Edward P. Ryan Jr., said he will enter a plea of not guilty on Remy’s behalf.
