Dauphin County, PA: Prisoners Barricade Themselves in to Avoid Lock Down

Nine inmates at Dauphin County Prison barricaded themselves in their cell block, used a metal box and battery-filled socks as weapons and trashed their own cells Monday night.

After the inmates refused to go back to their cells at 8:55 p.m., one redirected a camera so it was pointed toward the ceiling, then the inmates began stacking bunks and tying sheets together to keep officers out.

One officer broke his hand in the scuffle.
