7 inmates to be charged in connection with Marshall Co. jail disturbance
MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Seven inmates in the Marshall County Sheriff's Office were charged in connection with jail disturbance.
Investigators tell us on Saturday, April 22, seven inmates complained to jail staff about their dissatisfaction regarding the evening meal. The warden had an additional meal prepared for the inmates to satisfy their complaint.
Investigators say, after receiving their second meal, the seven inmates took their meal trays and damaged multiple fire suppression sprinklers, damaged the Kiosk, and destroyed a phone. The damage to the sprinkler system resulted in flooding of the jail floor. At this time, the damage estimate is not yet complete.
The 7 inmates will now face additional charges of Inciting a riot and damage to state property.
The inmates that are responsible for the disturbance and damage to the jail facility are:
- Nathan Winston Stephens, 30, of Albertville
- Adrian Michael Renteria, 23, of Albertville
- Randall Odell Ginn, 30, of Henager
- Cory Lee Ward, 37, of Albertville
- Kevin Stanley Miotke, 26, of Grant
- Darrel Leon Hopson Jr, 38, of Albertville
- Carsel Wayne Tawbush, 26, of Crossville
We're told, when the disturbance began, deputies responded to the jail with officers from Guntersville police. The deputies and officers were able to maintain control, but the disturbance did result in one inmate injuring himself while he was damaging the kiosk and phone.
That inmate was treated at Marshall Medical Center North in Guntersville and released.
