Inmate Assault Follow-Up


By Eric Weisfeld

Two-more Richland County jail guards are arrested in connection with an inmate beating at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
A county spokesperson says Todd Hollins and Olympia Tuten have been placed on administrative leave without pay.
They are also recommended for termination.
Investigators say Hollins and Tuten failed to report last month's assault and lied about the sequence of events.
37-year-old Robin Smith was initially charged with aggravated assault and battery.
