Inmate attacks fellow inmate in court

Within a matter of minutes deputies sprang into action to return peace inside a local courtroom.

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden says Angel Romero was brought to court on Thursday on charges he attacked a jailer deputy.

Sheriff Hayden says deputies had moments to respond when Romero attacked a fellow inmate.

Romero continued to fight with deputies so they stunned him.

Hayden says this is an example of why it is so important to have security in the courtroom.

“It’s just something we train for. It’s something that we take very serious, the safety of those in court and the judge,” said Hayden.

Hayden says as far as he knows, the attack was unprovoked.

The person who was attacked says he doesn’t know Romero.

Romero will also be charged with Assault on Inmate, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest.
