LAS VEGAS -- The man accused of attacking a Clark County Detention Center corrections officer with a baseball bat was also armed with a large knife and intended to hurt the first officer he saw, according to the arrest report.

Michael Law, 25, swung the bat several times hitting the officer in the head, neck, jaw and finger, the arrest report said. Other officers came to their co-worker's aid and as they were placing Law under arrest, he pulled out a large knife which an officer was able to take away from him. He later told officers, it was his back-up weapon.

According to the arrest report, Law was upset with police for the way they handled a robbery call involving him a few days earlier. He told police, he decided to take revenge on "the corrupt Metropolitan Police Department."

During a search of Law, police said they found a picture of Law, wrapped in plastic wrap, inside his anal cavity.
