Caught On Camera: Jail guard charged with assaulting prisoner

A jail security camera shows a guard beating an inmate at the East Cleveland jail.  Guard Bryant Brown has resigned after being charged with assault.

However, the prisoner has also been charged.  Courtney Bonner had been locked up on a traffic warrant and he is now charged with menacing.  The police chief says Bonner made threats against the guard's family, something Bonner denies that.

He says the guard got upset about some spilled milk, and then he started calling him names before he ripped off his uniform shirt to fight.
