Irish prison inmate 'eats his own excrement and throws his urine at prison guard'

An inmate serving time for robbery and attempted burglary reportedly shocked prison officers when he fired a cup of his urine at them during a bout of rage.
Anthony Maughan (34) from Ladyswell in Blanchardstown, Dublin is said to have begun eating his own feces in a vile effort to annoy prison guards.
Maughan was sent to the Midlands Prison in July 2010 after being sentenced to 12 years with four suspended.
Last week the inmate threw a cup full of his urine at a prison officer and has since been re-located to Wheatfield Prison in Dublin 22.
The convicted criminal is due for release next year, but now a file regarding his recent behaviour has been sent to gardai and could mean additional charges.
“The incident is being dealt with by management,” a spokesman from the Irish Prison Service told the Irish Daily Star.
“It is unacceptable behaviour and disciplinary action has been taken.
“The matter has been referred to An Garda Siochana, where Maughan could face further charges.”
Maughan is a recovering addict with more than 70 previous convictions, was sentenced to 12 years for trying to rob a 94-year-old man and robbing an Iranian tourist with a pair of scissors.
