A fight at Garner Correctional Institute in Newtown earlier this week led to multiple charges for one inmate.
Edward Cruz, 35, was charged with first-degree assault, third-degree assault and failure to submit fingerprinting on Nov. 11 at approximately 10:02 a.m.
According to police, Cruz was involved in an altercation with two other inmates. The physical altercation sent one inmate to Danbury Hospital with significant head injuries and left the other inmate with a black eye.
Cruz was scheduled to appear in Danbury Superior Court on the above charges on Nov. 15.
