Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On Wednesday, May 23, 2018, Corporal W. Moreland assigned to the Iredell County Detention Center was assaulted by an inmate while he was conducting medical rounds with the nurse.

Detective C. Lamberth of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division (CID) was called to investigate this incident.

Upon arriving at the detention center, Lamberth soon learned, inmate Hayden Nathaniel Roland, had altered his prescription reading glasses into a sharp object.

When Corporal Moreland called for Roland’s cell door to be opened, Roland charged at Corporal Moreland and struck him in the upper chest area with the makeshift knife. Moreland did not sustain any injuries and was able to subdue Roland and prevent him from injuring anyone else.

Hayden Nathaniel Roland was charged with one count of Felony Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill, and Felony Possession of a Weapon by a Prisoner.

Magistrate P. Tutterrow a 250,000.00 dollars secured bond for these charges. Roland was originally being held on a misdemeanor damage to property charge under a 1,000.00 dollars secured bond.
