Seven Prison Guards Injured in Melee at Coxsackie Correctional Facility

A total of 7 correction officers at the Coxsackie Correctional Facility were injured in a recent scuffle with an inmate.  

A spokesman for the NYSCOBA correction officers union says this happened back on November 5 when a 21-year-old inmate attacked several officers while being escorted back to his housing unit.  

Two officers were taken to Albany Med, the other five treated at the prison's medical clinic.

The inmate, who was serving time for weapons possession and attempted robbery, was taken to the special housing unit.  He faces internal disciplinary charges.
