16 inmates indicted after fight at Cook County Jail

A Grand Jury indicted 16 current Cook County Jail inmates on one count each in connection with a large fight that broke out in a maximum security unit this month.

The charges of mob action came one week after the Feb. 16 melee, during which two inmates were so badly injured that they had to be treated at local hospitals, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.


Some other inmates who were injured were treated inside the jail, a statement from Sheriff Tom Dart’s office said. At least one person suffered puncture wounds, officials said.

“None of the detainees’ injuries were life-threatening,” according to an emailed statement from the sheriff’s office.

The fight began about 9:30 p.m. and it lasted about two minutes, according to video from the jail that was released by the sheriff’s office. It began with a shove and quickly escalated into several smaller fights among the inmates.

While several people went on the offensive, some appeared to try to stay out of the way or took protective positions near walls. When guards came in to break up the fight, some inmates sat on the ground with their hands up and others continued to try to fight or get away, the video shows.

A homemade weapon was found after the brawl, according to the statement.


Arrested were:

• Breily Sotomayor, 24

• Richard Duncan, 20

• Javonte Daniels, 19

• Eddie Howlett, 25

• Miguel Webster, 23

• Matthew Cobbs, 24

• Garlin Minor, 24

• Robert Morales, 28

• Sylvester White, 23

• Eugene Spencer, 26

• Larry Woods, 39

• James Ford, 29

• James Wilson, 34

• Nicacio Munoz, 28

• Antonio Davis, 28

• Devonte Marsh, 22
