SC inmates hold guard hostage, take control of dorm Friday night

BISHOPVILLE, SC "Inmates at a maximum security South Carolina prison briefly held an officer hostage as they took control of part of a dorm Friday night.

Officials at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville say the uprising began around 6:50 p.m.

Inmates overpowered an officer and took control of one side of a dormitory, holding the officer for about an hour and 25 minutes, officials say.

Once the dorm and prison were secured by law enforcement, the officer was seen by medical staff and released to go home."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
