Brawl among inmates forces jail lockdown for hours.

12 11 2007

PATERSON — Warden Charles Meyers temporarily locked down the Passaic County Jail Saturday after officers broke up a brawl involving 40 inmates from rival gangs just after midnight Friday, said Sheriff’s Department spokesman Bill Maer. Some inmates suffered minor injuries but no officers were injured, he said. The inmates involved were taken to a super maximum security point. “Issues of this nature happen from time to time,” Maer said. “It’s the responsibility of the sheriff and the warden to initiate procedures to guarantee the security of the Passaic County Jail.” NorthJersey.Com
