Inmates claim abuse

By  | 

Choctaw County's sheriff says four inmates have been treated for minor injuries after an incident at the county jail late last week.

Sheriff Lewis Collins says the four claim they were beaten on Thursday.

Collins says a deputy was called to the jail after unruly inmates had flooded the facility, but exact details of what happened next are not being released due to an investigation.

One deputy was placed on leave until authorities are finished looking into the incident. OSBI is handling that investigation.
