Two Bibb County corrections officers required medical attention after they were attacked by prisoners Monday evening, according to an incident report released Friday.
Inmates Jeremy Taylor, 18, and Antwoin Roberson, 19, were charged with aggravated battery on a corrections officer and battery on a corrections officer after an altercation with two of the jail’s guards.
The two inmates refused to return to their cells after leaving the showers, and the two officers were dispatched to make the inmates return to their cells, officials said. The two inmates suddenly jumped on corrections officer Enos Curry, and the second officer, Jeremy Haddock, came to assist. Roberson punched Haddock in the face, breaking his nose.
A third officer in the control booth radioed for assistance. Both inmates were wrestled to the ground and handcuffed.

The two officers were taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia for treatment. Haddock’s jaw was broken in two places and his nose was broken. He was scheduled for surgery Wednesday to have a permanent metal plate and screws put in his jaw and mouth. Curry had a large knot on the side of his face and injured his hand.
