A dozen Harris County deputies find themselves in hot water this week. The Insite has learned 3 Sergeants, 1 deputy and 2 detention officers have been fired or disciplined for using excessive force on two inmates. Lt. John Martin with The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the problems began when several inmates in the Baker street jail appeared to be drunk back in April. A supervisor ordered a search of their cell and deputies found jail house moonshine. But the deputies reportedly went too far when they tried to restrain two inmates. Martin says one detainee was beaten so bad he ended up in the infirmary. This is not the end of the story because we’re told the Harris County District Attorney’s office is now looking at the case.
