Woman Charged with Assaulting Prison Guard



A Wilkes-Barre woman jailed on a prostitution charge is now accused of assaulting a corrections officer.

26-year-old Ashley Chaump was arraigned Wednesday  morning in Wilkes-Barre.

Investigators say Chaump became combative last month with a Luzerne County Prison Corrections officer and struck the female guard in the chest.

The corrections officer was not seriously injured.

Chaump remains jailed on 25- thousand dollars bail.
