PENNSYLVANIA- Three prison guards were suspended for allegedly making their inmates fight for food.

The fights were what an inmate, David Michael Wright, referred to as the “Retard Olympics.”

Several inmates reported “the officers made an inmate drink a gallon of milk in an hour, eat a spoon-full of cinnamon, take a punch to the arm without falling, and accept being sprayed with pepper foam in the face.”

The inmates were then rewarded with different snacks and coffee after completing the assigned tasks, according to the state police.

The investigation began after video was shown.

The guards, David Michael Whitcomb, 28, Mark Andrew Haynes, 26, and Daniel H. Graff, 37, say the allegations are untrue.
