Abuelazam attacked officer in jail: Report

A sheriff says jail officers used a stun gun to subdue a man accused of a series of fatal stabbings in Flint, Mich.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell tells The Flint Journal that Elias Abuelazam tried to punch a sergeant while he was unshackled and outside his cell Wednesday night.

Pickell says five deputies rushed to the area to assist and two were injured. He says Abuelazam's face was swollen but he wasn't seriously injured.

Abuelazam is in custody in the deaths of three men who were fatally stabbed in and around Flint last summer. He's charged in five cases of attempted murder.

Abuelazam also is charged with attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio, and is suspected in attacks in Leesburg, Va., where he once lived.

Someone as dangerous as him should be shackled even when he uses the bathroom.

He should be shanked with a sharpened, rusty spoon.
