Four New York City correction officers and several inmates have been injured during a brawl at Rikers Island Friday night.
Two New York City correctional officers were arrested in separate incidents this weekend.
A Riker’s Island correction officer had his thumb bitten off by a inmate and two other officers suffered injuries after a violent brawl apparently broke out Thursday night in the prison, officials said Friday.
New York City Correction Department spokesman Steven Morello said the injuries were non-life threatening. He did not say what caused the fights.
