MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee man faces charges for punching a Milwaukee County jailer in the face Tuesday morning.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office said Deshazo Campbell, 22, would not remove a gold grill from his mouth when he was being booked into the jail on two counts of robbery/use of force. 

When officers tried to calm him down, he threw several punches, hitting a correctional officer in the face several times. 

The correctional officer suffered a laceration above his eye, and cuts to his lip and hand. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries.  

This was Campbell's seventh arrest in less than two years.
