The Allen County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fight that broke out inside the jail earlier this week.
According to a news release, 27-year-old Cody Sutherly was placed in disciplinary lockdown after initiating a fight with 22-year-old Perry Jones. Jones reported that Sutherly began taunting and harassing him for unknown reasons. When Jones asked him to stop, Sutherly began throwing punches. Sutherly stopped once Jones began to fight back.
Jones was escorted to Lima Memorial Health System for a facial injury. Both are being held on rape-related charges. Jones initially planned to file charges against Sutherly for misdemeanor assault.
