A corrections officer was injured during an incident Sunday morning at the Canadian County Jail, according to authorities.

The Canadian County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) said the inmates at the jail complained about not being served enough food at breakfast.

The inmates then assaulted a corrections officer, took his defense spray and used it on him, CCSO said.

Tactical teams were called in and used flash bangs on the inmates, according to CCSO.

CCSO said tactical teams were able to get the jail under control.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene.
