2 Jail Detention Officers Fight, 1 Taken To Hospital

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Two detention officers at a South Texas jail have gotten into a fight, and one has been sent to the hospital.

The Bexar (bayr) County Sheriff’s Office says investigators are trying to determine what sparked Sunday’s incident at the jail in San Antonio.

Sheriff’s spokesman Paul Berry says what started as a disagreement between the two officers escalated into a physical altercation. Other jailers broke up the fight. Authorities say the jailer who was hurt has injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

The names of the two detention officers haven’t been released. Both have been put on administrative leave.

Further details weren’t immediately released.
