A Morgan County inmate is recovering in the hospital from attack. Authorities say that a fight broke out Sunday inside of the Morgan County Jail when inmate Coty Wilder was allegedly attacked while he was sleeping. He was transported to UT Medical Center for treatment of a black eye and possible bleeding on the brain. Wilder is claiming that guards at the facility allowed the fight to take place because they knew of trouble between the two prisoners. Sheriff Glen Freytag has denied such an allegation. He says that a full investigation has been launched surrounding the incident and that charges are pending against the inmate suspected of attacking Wilder. Picture courtesy of WVLT.
