Brawl between inmate, guard caught on camera

YAKIMA, Washington – A fight between an inmate and a guard at Washington's Yakima County Jail sent the guard to the hospital and left the inmate with even more criminal charges.

Security footage shows 22-year-old Julian Juarez punch corrections Officer Garrett Goettsch multiple times in the face.

A short time later the officer uses a taser and Juarez falls to the ground.

Department of Corrections Chief Scott Himes says Juarez was still resisting arrest even after being tasered.

"They were unsure if he had any weapons because my officer entered and saw my other officer was bleeding. He didn't know if he had a weapon underneath him so he ordered him to give up his arms so they could handcuff him but he wouldn't do it." said Chief Himes.
