COOK COUNTY, Ill. — The Cook County Sheriff’s Office Thursday released video of a violent brawl involving several jail inmates that broke out in a maximum security section.

On April 3, around 4:35 p.m., an altercation was reported in Cook County Jail’s Division 10, a maximum security tier, according to the sheriff’s office. A 21-second video clip shows about three dozen men mostly standing around when a cluster of them begin to trade punches.

At least two men are knocked to the ground in the scrum, and one of them is repeatedly kicked and stomped by other inmates.

The Sheriff’s Office said eight detainees who were allegedly involved in the fight were indicted by a grand jury: Maxamilian Aldridge, 19; Jermaine Douglas, 25; Brian Franklin, 19; Diamond Little, 23; Jonathan Rodriguez, 30; Travond Stewart, 22; Rynalder Williams, 23; and Rashawn Young, 21.

None of inmates suffered life-threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said.
