Chad Campbell Seeks Charles Ryan's Hide, as Female Corrections Officer Brutally Beaten in Winslow Prison

Welcome to the latest horror-show vignette of Oz-like violence from our friends at the Arizona Department of Corrections, this time with a female corrections officer as the victim of a brutal beat-down.

Wednesday night, CBS 5 reported on the recent attack of ADC Corrections Officer Benavidez (first name not given) at Arizona State Prison Complex in Winslow.

According to journalist Allyson Blair, Benavidez was jumped by two male prisoners "while escorting more than 50 unrestrained inmates by herself."
