February 2nd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

WCBC News contacted the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services after receiving word of a Friday incident at the North Branch Correctional Institute.  We received confirmation Monday from Public Information Officer Gerard Shields, and we quote: 

"Four of our officers suffered injuries after being attacked by four inmates. The incident happened on Friday at about 7:45 p.m. Four of the officers were taken to Western Maryland Health System, where they were treated and released. Two officers required sutures while the other two were treated for exposure to pepper spray. All of the inmates involved were apprehended and the incident was quelled quickly."
