Southern Kansas jail inmates create disturbance; no injuries

KSAL StaffJuly 10, 2016

A sheriff in southern Kansas says calm has been restored after dozens of inmates created a disturbance that included overturning tables and breaking security cameras.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says the incident began after lunch Sunday when 57 inmates complained about the food and refused to return to their cells.

Herzet says the inmates overturned tables, broke security cameras, televisions and sprinklers, and barricaded a door.

The sheriff says officials, including a SWAT team, were able to make entry. He said Sunday evening that the situation was under control and no one was injured.

Herzet says an investigation is  ongoing and charges will be filed against the inmates who destroyed property.
