If someone is in jail, it might be fair to assume they aren’t the friendliest or most trustworthy person.

One security guard found that out the hard way, allegedly being tricked by an inmate and locked in his cell.

This led to the inmate (who had been accused of killing five people) attacking several guards.

Watch the footage!

The inmate can be seen grabbing a large flashlight from under a desk and striking a jail guard in the face.

The two men struggle back and forth until a second guard comes to assist. They would eventually tie the inmate to a chair. Officials say this is the second time the inmate has attempted to escape.

Also this week…

Airport surveillance cameras caught the moment an airport worker was struck by lightning.

The footage shows a bolt of lightning striking the tail of a plane and running down the worker’s hand.

The worker miraculously survived the strike and is currently recovering from third degree burns.
