The brawl broke out at 12:10 p.m. Tuesday on the third floor of Tower One in a recreational area, L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told ABC7 news.
“It took our deputies about 90 seconds to stop this dust-up. It was along racial lines, Hispanic and African-American. We do not know what prompted it,” said Whitmore.
Whitmore said deputies used “sting-balls” and “clear-out” gas to end the altercation.
Four inmates were taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Other inmates were treated at Twin Towers and no deputies were injured, Whitmore said.
The incident was considered relatively minor.
