MIAMI — All privileges in the Ottawa County Jail have been revoked for 30 days, effective Wednesday, May 15, according to a Facebook post by Ottawa County Sheriff Jeremy Floyd.
According to Floyd’s post, the action was taken “because of the behavior of the majority of the inmates on today’s date and the assault & battery that took place on two of my detention deputies.”
Privileges revoked include visitation, kiosk, TV and the commissary.
Floyd said a pair of inmates cause a disturbance “over a cup.”
“The jail is not a privilege nor is a Holiday Inn,” Floyd’s Facebook post continued. “The inmates will receive the minimum standard set forth by law. I will not tolerate this type of behavior nor the disrespect. I especially will not tolerate combative behavior from any inmate!”
