A fight last week at the jail resulted in a plethora of charges for several inmates.

On April 26th at 9:38 p.m. deputies responded to the Rappahannock Regional Jail for an assault. The investigation revealed an inmate walked across the dayroom and a verbal altercation started with two other inmates, Collins Turner, 22, and Travis Ball, 32.

Turner proceeded to get up and began assaulting the victim inmate. When the victim inmate seemed to get the upper hand, Ball joined in assaulting the victim. The victim was punched, choked and kneed during the assault.

As the victim was being choked, another inmate tried to intervene. Jared Haney, 31, proceeded to assault the inmate that was trying to assist the original victim. Ball also joined Haney in the assault of the second inmate.

Jail officers arrived and the inmates were dispersed. One of the inmates was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

As a result of the investigation, warrants have been obtained against Turner and Ball for gang participation, malicious wounding by mob, strangulation, and three counts of conspiracy. Ball received an additional malicious wounding by mob and conspiracy charge for the second fight. Haney has warrants for gang participation, malicious wounding by mob and two counts of conspiracy. All three inmates remain incarcerated and are awaiting service of the warrants at the jail staff’s convenience.
