MANKATO, Minn. -- A guard at the Blue Earth County Jail in Minnesota is suspended after allegedly thumping an inmate with a Bible.

James Lee Sheppard is charged with two gross misdemeanors for allegedly swatting an inmate with the book, grabbing him by the throat and slamming him against steel bars in February.

A video recording shows Sheppard entering the cell of inmate Jeremy Hansen, taking Hansen's Bible and striking him in the side of the face with the book.
