Deputies respond to Juvenile Detention Center after Tuesday fight

PEORIA (WEEK) – Peoria County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the county Juvenile Detention Center after a Tuesday night brawl involving at least six juvenile immates and other staff members.

Sheriff Brian Asbell confirms deputies arrived around 9 p.m. at the center’s request and found an active situation requiring them to help staff members restrain and restore order.

It is currently unclear what prompted the fracas but Asbell said he was not aware of any detainees transported to the hospital and said no deputies were injured.

The Juvenile Detention Center is under the purview of 10th Circuit Chief Judge Paul Gilfillan.
