A young man convicted of torching an apartment complex last fall was to plead not guilty to a third-degree assault charge today.

Daniel J. Lambrix, 19, is accused of biting a jail deputy who was trying to restrain him in May, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Sept. 2.

Lambrix had been in jail since November before pleading guilty to second-degree arson and first-degree malicious mischief in June and getting credit for time served. He was given 12 months probation.

Also on today's arraignment docket was Brian Sayrs, the former Liberty Lake city councilman accused of domestic violence. (Past coverage here.)
