    A Vermont prison inmate has been charged with assault after police said he got into an argument with a fellow inmate and head-butted him while the two were working in a kitchen.

    Police said 40-year-old Shawn Macomber got into an argument at the Marble Valley Regional Correctional Center in Rutland with 32-year-old Joseph Wright, saying he was working too fast. Wright suffered a minor cut to the lip during the incident Friday.

    Macomber, who has been at the prison since last year on resisting arrest and other charges, was scheduled for a hearing July 20.
