BLADEN CO., NC (WWAY) -- The man severely beaten in the Bladen county jail last week is back in the hospital.
Joshua Ward's wife, Amanda, tells us he was showing signs of improvement, but after being released from the hospital Friday, he suffered a chronic headache.
Doctors say he has a blood clot between his brain and skull. They hope medication will take care of the clot to avoid surgery.
Ward suffered a gash to his face, several broken ribs and two black eyes after being beaten up by three fellow inmates last Tuesday.
