Arizona prison completes relocation of 700 inmates following Saturday disturbance

The operator of a private prison in Kingman says it has finished relocating hundreds of inmates after being sidelined by a disturbance.

The Management and Training Corp. spokesman Issa Arnita says prison officials completed moving roughly 700 inmates to other facilities Saturday night.

Inmates in the Hualapai housing units had refused to comply and caused disturbances and damage.

Arnita says four inmates were hurt. They were taken to a hospital but later released.

Officials are investigating what led to the disturbances and if more inmates will have to be moved until repairs can be made.

The prison has been beset with several disturbances in the past four days.

Nine corrections officers suffered minor injuries stemming from three incidents, including a riot in a medium-security unit.
