3 Milwaukee County jail officers hurt in scuffle with inmate

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Three Milwaukee County jail officers were injured in an attack by a combative inmate.

Sheriff's officials said a 43-year-old homicide suspect refused to return to his cell Tuesday, and he tried hitting an officer. The guard then attempted to use a stun-gun, but it failed.

Authorities said the prisoner tried choking another officer -- and then a third guard used his Taser weapon. Other officers helped to get the suspect handcuffed.

He was taken to a hospital after striking his head on a wall, and was returned to the jail after treatment.

One guard is off work with a torn tendon. Another suffered facial injuries, and a third hurt his forearm.
