Four inmates at the Madison County Jail have been charged with felony mob action after a fight Monday afternoon that sent a fifth inmate to a hospital. One of those charged is an Alton man awaiting trial on a felony charge of unlawful restraint. 21-year-old Justin Vaughn (pictured) of the 1,200 block of Brown Street was allegedly one of the men involved in the beating.
Vaughn, along with 24-year-old Levell A. Douglas and 21-year-old Briran B. Blake, both of Madison, and 27-year-old Dennis C. Green of St. Louis were playing cards Monday afternoon around 4 when the attack happened, according to Captain Mike Dixon with the Madison County Sheriff's Department.
The injured inmate was returned to the jail after treatment. The four accused have been placed in segregation and will be monitored closely throughout the rest of their stay in the County Jail, according to Dixon.
