Prison disturbance at Bibb County facility sends eight inmates to Jefferson County

A disturbance at the Bibb County Correctional Facility in Brent sent eight state inmates to another prison in Jefferson County, authorities said today.

The inmates were transferred to Donaldson Correctional Facility Monday night after an altercation broke out in the mess hall, and then carried over into their dorm. The Alabama Department of Corrections' emergency response team was dispatched to the Bibb County facility, but prison spokesman Brian Corbett said it was as a precaution and the prison staff was able to control the disturbance.

One corrections officer was treated for a cut lip and other scrapes and bruises, but Corbett said all of the injuries were minor. All of the inmates identified as being involved were assigned to the Behavior Modification Dorm for inmates with disciplinary issues. More
