A deputy jailer in Hardin County was arrested and suspended without pay after a fight with a sheriff's deputy on Wednesday, officials said. Clennon Smith was reportedly turning over inmate property to Joe Funk when things got heated over where a backpack should be placed, according to WHAS. Funk is accused of throwing the property back at the deputy

Funk was to appear in court on Friday, charged with third-degree felony assault of a probation/police officer, menacing and resisting arrest. Smith is still on the job.
