Bagged lunch triggers brawl between inmates in courthouse cell


INDIANA, Pennsylvania – A dispute over a banana and a biscuit apparently sparked a fight between two inmates in a detention cell in a Pennsylvania courthouse.

According to the authorities, Ryshawn Crawford, 18, and a 35-year-old man were in Indiana County Court for independent business on Friday when Crawford said he wanted the other's lunch . The other inmate gave the sandwich to Crawford, but refused to return the other two items.

Crawford then allegedly attacked the other man, who was not seriously injured. The battle was quickly interrupted by sheriff's deputies and Crawford was charged with assault, harassment and strangulation.

Crawford is currently serving a five-year jail term for robbery. The other detainee is in Indiana County Jail, under the charge of an impaired driving charge.
