An ambulance responded to the Roane County Jail Tuesday morning after an inmate jumped from a balcony in one of the housing pods.
A dispatch report said the inmate was “hurting all over.” He was taken to Roane Medical Center.
Roane County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Tim Phillips said he’s not sure why the inmate jumped.
“There’s really no telling why,” he said. “Sometimes people do things for attention. I really don’t know.”
