An inmate is facing charges after he fired a cup of his urine at a prison officer during a fit of rage.

Anthony Maughan (34) from Ladyswell in Blanchardstown, Co Dublin has also reportedly begun eating his own faeces in a disgusting effort to annoy prison guards.

The 34-year-old was locked up at the Midlands Prison in July 2010; sentenced to 12-years with four suspended for robbery and attempted burglary.

Last week the dirty con flung a cup full of his urine at a prison officer during a temper tantrum and has since been moved to Wheatfield Prison.

The criminal is due for release next year, but now a file has been sent to the gardai about the incident which could mean more charges.

“The incident is being dealt with by management,” a spokesman from the Irish Prison Service told the Star.

“It is unacceptable behaviour and disciplinary action has been taken.

“The matter has been referred to An Garda Siochana, where he could face further charges.”

Maughan, who 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.
