Columbus Co. Sheriff investigating jail beating


WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- The Columbus County Sheriff's Office is looking into a beating in the county jail that sent an inmate to the hospital.

Daniel Lynn Davis was hit so hard his jaw was broken.

Maj. Lewis Hatcher says investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what happened that led to the fight. Hatcher says they believe two other inmates may have been involved in the incident, but at this point they are unsure.

Davis had been in jail for two weeks after being arrested on charges from South Carolina when his jaw was broken. Davis is back in jail.
