THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Family members have told doctors to remove life-supprts for a Grady County inmate severly injured a brutal jail attack.

Wade Harry was attacked by another inmate Friday night and severely beaten in the head. He underwent surgery Monday.

Now the GBI is investigating how this beating could have happened at a county jail.

Wade Harry underwent surgery Monday night in Thomasville at Archbold Memorial Hospital.

Investigators say Grady county inmate Ricky Reynolds attacked Wade Harry Friday night, causing severe brain damage and nearly killing him.

Harry was in the Grady county jail on a misdemeanor charge for violating his probation. Reynolds was in jail for burglary and criminal damage to property.

Sheriff Harry Young says his jail was fully staffed Friday night, and says his officers responded as fast as they could.

The GBI was called in to take over the investigation. They are still trying to determine the motive of the fight, and whether anyone else was involved.

Sheriff Young says the jail is full right now with 140 inmates and that's nearly double the number of inmates the jail typically holds.

Ricky Reynolds, the accused attacker, has not yet been charged.
