Two more Alvin S. Glenn officers placed on leave

Posted: Updated:

Two more corrections officers from the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center have been placed on administrative leave with pay in connection with an incident involving an inmate and former officer Robin Smith.

Smith, 37, was fired from the detention center after he was arrested and charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

Officials say Smith and other officers entered the unidentified inmate's cell and assaulted the man because he refused to follow the officers' instructions.

Four other officers were also placed on leave in connection with the same incident.

In all, six officers are on leave.
