Inmates Accused Of Fighting After TV Argument

LAWRENCEBURG – Four inmates at Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center are facing felony charges after allegedly ganging up on another inmate after a dispute over what channel was on television.

Luis Magallon, 33, Damon Miller, 21, Patrick Garvey, 28 and Dakota Fraley, 20, have been charged with criminal confinement resulting in bodily injury, a level 5 felony; as well as battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, a level 6 felony.

The July 21 fight stemmed from a disagreement between Magaollon and fellow inmate Dwion Hicks, 35, over what channel was on TV in the day room, the Dearborn County Register reported.

The fight started in one cell and later moved to a different area of the jail.

Investigators say Magallon struck Hicks with his fist two or three times, then two other inmates, Miller and Garvey began attacking Hicks while Fraley held the door closed.

Fraley eventually opened the door and Hicks left the area, police said.

Magallon later told police Hicks pushed him, and the other inmates attempted to break it up. Fraley told investigators that he had been trying to get in the cell to stop the fight, not hold the door closed.

The newspaper reports that Garvey told investigators something between Hicks and Magallon has been “brewing” for months.
