Arizona prison to relocate 355 more prisoners
KINGMAN, Ariz. - Arizona Department of Corrections officials are relocating more than 350 inmates following a disturbance at a privately run prison in Kingman.
Department spokesman Andrew Wilder said Sunday that about 355 inmates are being transferred to other facilities because of damage that was done to housing units the day before.
Wilder says the process should be completed by Sunday evening and the inmates have remained compliant.
The prison's operator has already transferred 700 inmates since the Saturday disturbance.
Management and Training Corp. spokesman Issa Arnita says inmates in the Hualapai housing units had refused to comply and caused extensive damage.
Four inmates were hurt. They were taken to a hospital and later released.
The prison has been beset with several disturbances in the past four days.
