Jail uprising is caught on tape

Surveillance video is giving us an inside look at a disturbance over the weekend at a Tennessee jail.

The video shows an inmate tackling a guard in the hallway at the Hamblen County Jail.

He takes down the guard as he's trying to serve breakfast.

There's a struggle on the ground, and finally the guard is able to get back up.

Later, you can see the swat team coming in to assist.

Jail officials say five ring leaders have been transported to neighboring jails.
