Inmate Attacks Correctional Sergeant with Weapon

An inmate at California State Prison-Corcoran attacked a Correctional Sergeant with an inmate-made weapon the afternoon of February 2, inflicting injuries to his head. Two officers who responded were also injured while subduing the inmate, Tavis Ray Thompson, 36.

During the shower program, Thompson slipped his handcuffs and charged the sergeant with a weapon in his right hand. He struck the sergeant several times on the left side of his head.

The unit alarm was sounded, and responding officers used physical force and batons to subdue Thompson.

The sergeant's injuries were described as a scratch on the left side of his face; a slash on the back of the ear; and abrasions to the lower back of his head, both hands, right elbow and both knees. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The responding officers were also taken to a hospital, one for treatment of a sprained wrist sustained when he was kicked by inmate Thompson, the other for swelling on the back of the hand.

Thompson was treated for abrasions on his head, back and left knee, as well as swelling on the left side of his face, and then returned to his cell.

The weapon was described a piece of aluminum sharpened on one side and attached to a cardboard handle..... http://cdcrtoday.blogspot.com/2013/02/inmate-attacks-correctional-sergeant.html
