Authorities say four staff members were injured by two inmates at the Tecumseh prison in southeast Nebraska.

The melee occurred Saturday when an inmate refused a cell search and appeared to dump homemade alcohol into a toilet.

Authorities say the staffers used pepper spray on him when he wouldn't let them into the cell, and another inmate punched a staffer. The inmates kicked, punched and kneed staffers before being restrained.

Authorities say the four staffers were taken to a hospital and treated for scrapes and bruises. One was diagnosed with a concussion.
