Since our earlier post about a Pinal County jail inmate who beat up a detention officer so he could remain in custody and hopefully avoid a "hit" put out on him by a Mexican drug cartel, we got our hands on some video of the attack. It's pretty wild.
Last week, Alexandro Guerrero, 26, was scheduled to be released from a Pinal County jail where he'd been serving time for a failure-to-comply warrant out of Yuma. But Guerrero claims there is a "hit" out on him from the "Los Zetas" drug cartel -- so he punched a detention officer in the face and attacked him while he was on the ground with the hope that it would allow him to remain in jail.
