He briefly resisted staff’s efforts to secure him using hand and leg restraints; however, after applying minimal force, He was secured using hand and leg restraints causing all resistant behavior to cease. During the process of assuming control of him, the other inmate blended in with other inmates and he was not identified until approximately 30 minutes later, via a review of recorded surveillance tape. Though the Tower Officer stated he saw each inmate swing their arms at the other he did not see any physical strikes. However, it was later determined the first inmate had drank intoxicants and he provided two breath analysis tests, producing results of .134% and .145%. They were both medically assessed and neither had evident injuries. Subsequent information revealed they were on the Rec. Yard, socializing with other inmates when one inexplicably became agitated and aggressive, most likely worsened by his use of intoxicants. Efforts to calm him failed, resulting in him swinging, and then missing. Due to his actions and behavior he has received an incident report for a violation of Code.

An Officer was working FA-Unit locking down Inmates for the 4:00pm count when one Inmate began assaulting another Inmate 20 feet away from the Officer.
 
The Officer activated his Body Alarm for assistance, but what had happened was that the Body Alarm normally assigned to that unit, had been replaced by a Body Alarm from another department due to the fact that the one assigned to that unit had been getting "repaired" since April 2, 2007.  The Body Alarm the Officer had was one assigned to the Education Department.
 
When the Officer  activated his Body Alarm for assistance it showed in Control as being in Education, so that's were the responding Staff went. When they could not find anything wrong in Education or who was in possession of the Body Alarm that was activated a Lieutenant cleared it.
 
About the time the control room figured out where the assistance was needed the Officer had reset  his Body Alarm and used the radio to notify staff where to respond because so much time had passed.
 
The Officer was very thankful that he  was not the one being assaulted.
