Fighting in Safford federal prison suspends visiting hours
SAFFORD, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — All visitation hours are suspended until further notice at the low-security federal prison in Safford after multiple inmates were observed fighting, says a spokesperson for the Bureau of Prisons’ western region.
Fighting broke out in the prison on Thursday around 6 p.m. Several inmates were taken to a local hospital for treatment, the spokesperson says, but have since returned to the facility. An internal investigation is underway. The prison currently houses 792 male inmates and is located in the southeast region of Arizona, just east of Mt. Graham.
