Nashville Man Accused of Attacking Jail Guards

A Nashville man, who was already in jail on theft charges, is now facing allegations that he assaulted three jail guards during an altercation over the weekend. 25-year-old Hector Cuevas allegedly attacked a corrections officer who had opened his cell door to remove a towel that Cuevas had placed over the window of the cell. Cuevas allegedly charged out of the cell, grabbed a broom handle, broke it off, and began swingint at Corrections Officer Heath Dilldine. The warrant alleges Cuevas bit Dilldine during the fracas and that two other officers, Theresa Everard and Jeremiah Sells, were also struck with the broom handle when they came to assist.
