We always see or read about fights in prisons between prisoners wanting to assert themselves. Usually it ends with the guards running in to break it all up.
In this case it was an inmate which had to break up a fight between prison guards!
Apparently the fight started between the guards over something as stupid as a bag of chips. As the inmate tried to intervene, he got punched in the mouth and lost a tooth.
“The incident may have been between two officers, but it is an embarrassment to everyone in the sheriff’s office who takes pride in their job and uniform,” Undersheriff Mark N. Wipperman told the newspaper.
The inmate was taken to hospital, and has since been returned to the jail.
An investigation is underway and the officers involved will likely face disciplinary charges.
