The 25-year-old Las Vegas man accused of walking into the security screening area of the county jail last fall and bashing a corrections officer with a baseball bat pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of battery with use of a deadly weapon.
On Sept. 11, 2013, Michael Law walked into the Clark County Detention Center with a baseball bat and started swinging, injuring the first officer he encountered, Metro Police reported.
Law, using the baseball bat, struck Corrections Officer Darren McCray two or three times, injuring his head, neck, jaw and finger.
Two officers tackled Law and attempted to take him into custody when he produced a knife, which the officers retrieved without further injury, according to the police report.
Law told investigators he had intended to exact revenge against the “corrupt Metropolitan Police Department” for how it had responded to his Sept. 7 report that he had been robbed.
Clark County District Judge Carolyn Ellsworth scheduled Law’s sentencing for March 3.
Law remains in Clark County Detention Center on $60,000 bond, according to jail records.
