Marshall County inmate still posting on social media 2 weeks after jail riot

MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Marshall County jail inmate is still posting to social two weeks after a riot at the jail led to several jailers being fired for promoting prison contraband.

Inmate Teizzon Crayton repeatedly said on his videos from jail two weeks ago he wasn't tired. Evidently he is not, posting to social media around 5 a.m. Thursday. He replied to a comment on WAFF 48 News reporter Stephen McLamb's Facebook fan page about his video shared during the jail riot.

Sheriff's officials say they're trying to get the jail situation under control. After four jailers were fired and arrested for promoting prison contraband, five new ones have been hired.

They say two have county jail experience but all five are in training now and they're working to fill the remaining four or five jail slots still open.

Sheriff's officials say they recovered a cellphone from Crayton Thursday and have charged him with promoting prison contraband. Investigators are now trying to determine how he got it.
