HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - Some prisoners in the Lea County jail started fires and broke toilets and windows after they were told they would be allowed only one sausage each for dinner.

Warden Jann Gartman says 33 prisoners were involved in the melee Tuesday evening.

Officers from the Lea County Sheriff’s and Hobbs Police departments were called to the jail to restore control. The jail was locked down after the incident.

Gartman says damage to the jail was light.

Charges against the rebellious prisoners are pending. The other 300 prisoners accepted the meal without incident.
