Officer Confronted By Inmates, Captured On Camera (Video)

A deputy was assaulted by an inmate last month in the Mahoning County Jail in Ohio.
Inmate Lucky Mitchell violently attacked Deputy Anthony Lucas and the incident was recorded on surveillance video at the jail.

Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene noted it appeared Mitchell tried to strangle Lucas after the deputy returned to the disciplinary cell where Mitchell was assigned for spitting. Mitchell was performing a “mandatory one-hour recreation period” in the cell.

“He asked the officer working the pod at the time if he could get him some toilet paper and when he was getting him the toilet paper, he asked him to look up on the computer when his next court date was,” Greene explained.

As you can see in the video, after Lucas came back into the cell, Mitchell tried to slip a noose made from a t-shirt over the deputy’s head.

“It was a pretty intense altercation that took place and I’m sure when an officer has somebody try to slip something over their head to choke them with, they’re gonna end up fighting pretty hard for their life.”

The two fought for about a minute then two other inmates came into the cell and held Mitchell until other officers arrived. Deputy Lucas only suffered minor injuries in the incident.
