A person in police custody was hospitalized Wednesday after he was beaten in a holding cell by a fellow detainee, according to Richmond County Sheriff Ronnie Strength.

The incident occurred about 10 a.m. Wednesday, Strength said Thursday. The victim, Earl Bolar, had been arrested on a disorderly conduct charge and was sleeping in a holding cell with five others when one of the detainees, Jeremy Taylor , began punching him in the head.

Taylor knocked Bolar to the floor and began kicking him in the head, Strength said.

Bolar was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he was treated for head injuries.

Taylor, who had been arrested for disorderly conduct, is now also charged with aggravated battery.

This seems to be a trend at

This seems to be a trend at the jail, not only w/inmates but officers too.
Won't do any good to take the guy to court they will just throw it out. Same thing happened to my son who is an epileptic, the inmate in the cell beat him down put him in ICU and Judge Allen issued warrant on the guy, my son goes to court and the prosecuter dismisses prosecuting because one inmates word against the other. Oh yes they even dismissed case of why ny son was incarcerated which was (disorderly conduct) thats what they use when they pick you up for being homeless.
He was homeless due to be an addict. I love him but he is in God's hands do not tolerate drug use. What gets me is they know at the jail of his medical conditions and they put these people in a cell instead of medical ward. I heard this guy was a 64 yr. old man that got beat down and was in very bad shape. Maybe this inmate won't get away w/it. The GBI needs to inv. activities in 401.

Definitely a cautionary tale

Definitely a cautionary tale for young men who think they are tough, and for older men who need to seek help to get off the streets.

I just wonder why this wasn't observed and stopped by the COs immediately.
