Argument Over TV Sparked Bloody Fight with Homemade Knives in Richmond County Jail

-

Five Richmond County inmates have been charged in connection with Saturday’s bloody fight that left four of them stabbed with homemade shanks.

Authorities say four inmates – Daieshawn Lanham, Quindarius Bussey, Lewis Wigfall, and Kendrick Green – got into an altercation with two other inmates, Antonio Bryant and Patrick Walters.

During the altercation Antonio Bryant, Patrick Walters, Daieshawn Lanham, and Quindarius Bussey were all stabbed multiple times. All four injured inmates were transported to a local hospital and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.

“No inmates would provide information about the fight,” a sheriff’s report says.

Two homemade knives were found in the dayroom of Pod Room. One homemade knife was found in Wigfall’s room and Green’s room.

The incident apparently stemmed from an argument over the TV. At one point, Antonio Bryant pulled out a sock with a blunt object inside the sock and Patrick Walters pulled out a homemade knife, the report says. The fight followed.

The new charges:

Patrick Edward Walters (23 yoa): Items Prohibited for Possession by Inmate without Warden’s Authorization (Felony)

Kendrick Ty’Mond Green (17 yoa): Items Prohibited for Possession by Inmate without Warden’s Authorization (Felony); Aggravated Assault (Felony) – 2 Counts

Lewis Maurice Wigfall (18 yoa): Simple Battery (Misd)

Quindarius D’wan Bussey (21 yoa): Items Prohibited for Possession by Inmate without Warden’s Authorization (Felony); Aggravated Assault (Felony) – 2 Counts

Daieshawn Devon Lanham (18 yoa): Items Prohibited for Possession by Inmate without Warden’s Authorization (Felony); FEL Aggravated Assault (Felony) – 2 Counts
