(Neb)-Another Attack On Tecumseh Prison Staff

By: John Axtell Posted at: 04/20/2017 12:31 PM
Tecumseh, Neb. (AP) -There's been another incident of inmate attacks on guards at the Nebraska medium-maximum security prison in Tecumseh.The Correctional Services Department says an inmate punched two guards and bit a caseworker yesterday.
 
       The department says the melee broke out as staffers removed apparently inebriated inmates from a housing unit. One of the inmates started throwing punches when he learned he would be handcuffed, and staffers responded with pepper spray. The inmate then bit the caseworker's thigh.
 
     The guards were treated at a hospital, the caseworker didn't seek medical care, and Corrections didn't say if the inmate, whose name wasn't released, needed treatment.
