HENDERSON, Tennessee — Officials say a Tennessee man charged in the disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo is now charged with assault in an altercation with three jail officers.

A report from the Chester County Sheriff's Office says Zachary Adams was being moved to a specialized jail cell June 13 after he made suicidal comments, "specifically to throw himself from the highest point to which he could climb in his cell."

The report says Adams hit two corrections officers and tried to trip another jailer as they tried to restrain him. Adams was carried to the cell, where he was to be monitored to prevent him from injuring himself.

Adams is charged with murder and kidnapping in the April 2011 disappearance of the 20-year-old Bobo.

Adams' attorney did not immediately comment.
