An inmate inside the Calhoun County Jail was recently taken to a nearby hospital after being stabbed multiple times by another inmate. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, 23-year-old Austin Abernathy stabbed another inmate while they both were inside of a holding cell.


Abernathy was booked into the county jail in January for unknown charges in Etowah County where he has since been relocated too. Although Abernathy is now in the Etowah County Jail to face charges there, he will be charged with first degree Assault or Attempted Murder in Calhoun County.
