One day after being returned to the Douglas County Jail, a murder suspect was involved in another fight, this time involving four corrections officers and two other inmates.

Anthony Floyd had been treated for a torn scrotum when he was approached Friday afternoon by James Briggs. A guard stepped in, but not before Floyd tried to hit Briggs with a chair. Briggs was able to get the guard's can of pepper spray and used it against four corrections officers and another inmate who tried to get involved in the scuffle.

No one was seriously injured. Briggs was charged with four felony counts of assault on an officer.

Floyd is in jail on a first-degree murder charge for the death of Rodney Hunt last October.

Floyd was involved in an altercation on Thursday afternoon with Marcus Escamilla, a suspect in the shooting death of Kenneth Gunia in April 2013. Floyd underwent surgery for his injury. Escamilla was booked for assault by a confined person.
