Punches Over Chess Game

Continuing with the chess violence theme, here is another reported incident:

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- A chess game led to an altercation between inmates at the Indian River County Jail.

Indian River County Sheriff's Office deputies said Christopher Brown was playing chess with another inmate in the cell block Wednesday when Christopher O'Neal interjected on the other inmate's behalf.

Brown said he told O'Neal to leave them alone, but O'Neal ignored him and began yelling at him. Brown said he left the table and walked back to his cell when O'Neal followed him.

Deputies said other inmates witnessed O'Neal punch Brown several times. It took several detention deputies to break up the fight.

According to the incident report, O'Neal told deputies it was simply "a misunderstanding between them."

O'Neal was arrested on charges of battery on a detained person and resisting arrest without violence.
