An inmate housed at the Hamilton County jail was taken to the hospital on Sunday after being found unresponsive.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office reports the inmate was discovered around 11:00 p.m. at the downtown jail. 

 

Officials found out that the inmate had been in a fight with a cellmate, which may account for the inmate’s medical condition which is listed as critical. 

 

The circumstances around the incident are under investigation by the HCSO Criminal Investigations Division.
