    Ex-prison guard faces mayhem charge

    A former correction officer was arraigned Monday in Suffolk District Court on charges that he bit off a piece of a man’s nose in a May 2 confrontation, said Jake Wark, spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney. Kenneth Michaud, 40, of Swampscott worked as a correction officer for 20 years at the Essex County Correctional Facility before retiring, according to his attorney, Gary Zerola. Michaud pleaded not guilty to mayhem and assault and battery charges after an alleged beating that sent his former business partner to Massachusetts General Hospital, Wark said.
