Secret Bar Served Inmates Tequila Shots in Mexican Prison

Nothing like enjoying a few shots of Tequila to go with that ice cold beer while relaxing in your Mexican prison cell. Right?

Police have discovered a bar at prison in northern Mexico that served beer, tequila and vodka to inmates.

A spokesman for Chihuahua state's prosecutor for prisons saysd the deputy director of the prison where the bar was discovered has been fired. Spokesman Jorge Chaires said Wednesday that guards at the low-security prison are under investigation.

The bar was discovered Monday at the prison in Chihuahua city, the state capital. Federal police and state authorities confiscated 200 beer cans, 12 bottles of tequila and 20 bottles of vodka.

The bar also had a billiard table.

Seventeen inmates, meanwhile, have escaped from another northern Mexican prison, apparently using a tunnel they had dug from the laundry room.
