Prison Convict Locks Door, Grabs Guard’s Weapon And Assaults Him In Surprise Attack

As part of an effort to call attention to jail under-staffing — leading to 12-hour shifts — the warden of the Mobile County Jail released dramatic video of an inmate bursting into an office and attacking a lone guard after locking the door so no one could help.

The incident took place in January of 2015 when an inmate, who was not previously thought to be dangerous, wandered an empty hallway before seeing the corrections officer sitting alone at his desk.

The unidentified inmate then ran into the room, slamming an automatically locking door behind him before he assaulted the officer, coming away with either his Taser or handgun.

Using edits showing the hallway, another officer can be seen trying to provide assistance only to have to fumble for his keys before helping to subdue the now-armed assailant.

According to jail Warden Noah Price Oliver, the attack was “sort of the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

The warden explained that their inability to hang onto experienced correctional employees has made it dangerous for current employees facing hostile inmates.
