Seventeen inmates injured in two L.A. County jail brawls

By: Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- Black and Hispanic inmates brawled Tuesday in a new round of racial violence in Los Angeles County's jails, authorities said. Fourteen inmates were reported injured.

Guards used tear gas, rubber "stingballs" and pepperballs to quell the fighting among more than 90 inmates at the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

One inmate was hospitalized with head cuts, Whitmore said.


The fighting was the latest in a series of brawls that began Feb. 4. One inmate was killed and another collapsed and died during the battles.
