On Monday, Deputies at the Barren County Detention Center responded to an altercation between three inmates. Deputies were able to remove two of the inmates without incident, but the third, 21 year old Dustin Wooten, of Glasgow, refused to cooperate. Wooten became violent, according to reports and began to assault the Deputy Jailers. OC Spray was ultimately used to subdue Wooten. Three Deputies were treated for minor injuries from the altercation.
Jailer Tracy Bellamy said “we strive to maintain a safe environment, but we deal with violent felons everyday. I am very proud of how they handled the situation in a quick and professional manner.”
Wooten could face additional charges as a result of the incident.
