“Being inmates does not prevent additional arrests,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “If you do a crime, you will be arrested and prosecuted. These three young men are already facing serious charges and now they are accumulating additional charges. Violent behavior is not tolerated in our community; nor is it tolerated in our jail.”
