ELYRIA — A city man beaten by a Lorain County Jail guard in 2012 is in trouble with the law again.

Jordan Sand is accused of spitting blood at a police officer while being booked at the Police Department on Thursday morning, according to police Lt. Jason Cunningham. A police report was unavailable Thursday night, but Cunningham said about 6 a.m. police were called to a disturbance on Seventh Street.

Sand, 20, was arrested and charged with obstructing official business, criminal damaging and resisting arrest. The spitting allegations led to charges of felonious assault and harassment by an inmate.

County jail surveillance video showed guard Marlon Taylor beating Sand in 2012. Taylor in January was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.

Sand, of the 100 block of South Abbe Road, received a $50,000 settlement after filing a federal civil rights lawsuit. Sand was being held without bond Thursday night and is due in Elyria Municipal Court today.


  • It has to stop

    This POS is just following in the footsteps of his douche bag father.

      Don’t know his father…..but he is anything like the son….glad I don’t.

      • It has to stop

        Search Vance Suta at the Elyria and Lorain County dockets. You’ll see all you need.

          Looks like a “fine” family.

    Perhaps Mr Sand needs to spend a few years with Bubba?

    Hate to say it, but I will.

    Told you so. I knew we would be seeing this punk again.

    I place a bet on the fact that he was hoping the guard would attack him so he could get more money for the county.

    This child needs a good A$$ beating.

  • golfingirl

    I wonder if any of the $50k is left?

    Doesn’t look like he spent any of it on improving his life.

    Probably all went to attorneys, or will very soon.

    • luvmytoaster

      I can guarantee you that the taxpayers will end up footing the bill for his next attorney, and his next attorney and his next attorney…..etc.

    The Kid was probably all caught up in the LaBron hoopla..

  • Bruce Tennant

    lighten up, he’s simply training for Rover Fest

    • Chan

      Not sure if you’ve ever been to Rover Fest but I have and the security is pretty tight and I don’t recall any incidents taking place during the fest.

  • saltydog77

    Judge, put this a$$hat in Prison so he has a chance to spit on others who will treat him accordingly.

    • ken

      Burge will let him off

  • Razorback Twou

    Looks as if money does’t change everybody.

  • Fred Garvin

    A night stick in the bread basket is in order.

  • Otter

    Just wondering, where did he get the blood?

    • golfingirl

      He was hit in the face with a 4X4 as he was breaking down someone’s door.

      He was drunk, of course.

      • Otter

        Guess they couldn’t hit him hard enough to knock some sense into him.
