The alleged killer of Fort Myers police officer Adam Jobbers-Miller is facing a new charge of battery on a law enforcement officer after throwing a cup of urine at a Collier County correctional officer.

The incident occurred at 11:30 a.m. Thursday as a Corporal was conducting his assigned duties, serving lunch, in a housing unit of the Naples Jail Center, according to the arrest report.

Desmaret is currently facing the death penalty after shooting and killing Jobbers-Miller at the Marathon gas station on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard after the officer arrived to investigate the theft of a cellphone.

Desmaret, the alleged thief, lunged and took Jobbers-Miller to the ground, and then shot him with his own gun. The officer would later succumb from his gunshot wound to the head a week later on July 28.
