This happened around 8:30pm in the housing tier of Division 9, a super-max part of the jail. The inmates can be seen repeatedly punching the guards as other inmates watch from the common area.
Eventually, both officers are able to escape as other guards gather to storm the area. In greater numbers, the officers rush in. But by then, most of the inmates are lying on the ground and offering no resistance.
The two beaten deputies were taken to area hospitals for treatment. One deputy had a fractured orbital and the other lost consciousness and was kept at the hospital overnight for observation, Dart’s office said in a news release.
