The Sedgwick County Sheriff says an inmate faces Aggravated Battery charges after an incident involving another inmate.
Sheriff Jeff Easter held a news briefing Tuesday afternoon.
He says detention deputies noticed an inmate throwing up on the evening of January 4th. They monitored him through the evening and he was taken to the hospital in the morning. The inmate told hospital workers that another inmate rammed his head into a wall after a gambling game in the jail pod.
"We will look at the case and see if the (District Attorney's) office will charge it, of course it takes the victim wanting to prosecute for us to be able to charge," Easter said.
Easter also said he wants to be more open and transparent about incidents like this at the jail.
"If we can make this a safer environment for everybody, we won't have these discussions as much," Easter said.
