DAYTON, RHEA COUNTY (WRCB) - In Rhea County, the jail could be decertified if something isn't done to relieve overcrowding.
The state inspected the jail about two weeks ago and says the county has until November to come up with a plan to fix the problem.
The jail can hold 80-inmates, but Sheriff Mike Neal says most months, as many as 100 inmates are housed there.
And because it's been a problem in the past, the state is requesting minutes from past commission meetings to see if the issue has really been addressed.
Officials say the victim, Michelle Rich, was shot in the hand with a flare gun by her father Gary Price.More
