Guam - The Department of Corrections has launched an internal affairs investigation into a fight that occurred on the yard outside its Maximum Security Unit otherwise known as Post 6 in Mangilao. According to court documents when a detainee was allowed to go outside for some fresh air, another detainee, identified as Ninton Hauk, managed to get out of his cell and attack him.

While an officer ran out to stop the fight, a second detainee, Yprok Chutaro ran out on to the yard and also began attacking the first detainee. While an officer managed to pull off Hauk, other officers joined in to get Chutaro.  After both were restrained, Chutaro allegedly remained combative and belligerent. Hauk also admitted to officers that he had homemade shanks in his cell. Officers found a seven inch shank, and a nine-inch and ten inch metal wire. Two officers suffered minor injuries in the altercation. As for the detainee who was jumped, he suffered multiple injuries to his face and a cut on his right hand.
