Correctional Officer assaulted at CSP-Los Angeles County

A correctional officer was injured during an attack by an inmate Saturday, Nov. 18, at California State Prison, Los Angeles County (LAC) in Lancaster. At around 8 p.m., two officers approached inmate George Hudson, 30, in the dayroom of his housing unit to inform him he had been found guilty of a Rules Violation Report (RVR) for possession of a cellphone and was being placed on restricted status. Hudson rapidly walked away from the officers and into his cell, where one officer attempted to place him in handcuffs. Hudson turned toward the officer and punched him in the nose.
