The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said an unnamed male inmate now faces charges of uttering threats and common assault, after a skirmish with prison guards.

No one was injured in the incident, an RNC spokesperson said.

The incident happened Wednesday.

The inmate will appear in provincial court on the charge later this month.
