VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - Northwestern Indiana authorities say they plan to file charges against five jail inmates who resisted guards orders to disperse earlier this month and threatened to riot.
The Post-Tribune of Merrillville and The Times of Munster report the five were upset about having power cut to the jail following an April 6 fight and a decision by the jail to move one inmate afterward.
Porter County police say the next day, the five inmates went to the upper tier of their cell block and refused to come down and attempted to throw paper towels over cameras so guards could not see them.
Police plan to meet with prosecutors to decide on charges.
