Cook jailers say they did no wrong

Adel-- An initial report dismisses accusations that Cook County lawmen assaulted an inmate this weekend.

Twenty-eight-year-old Clyde Williams was arrested Saturday night by Adel police for an outstanding warrant. Once in jail, he began to kick and beat on the door of the holding cell. Later, while having his mug shot taken, Williams fought with jailers and was put in a restraining chair.

They hit him twice in the leg with an baton and later tasered him.

Captain Colin Millison of the Cook County Sheriff's Office said the deputies and jailers followed protocol and said there wasn't any excessive forced used. "I've turned over the incident reports and tapes to my investigators," said Millison. "I've interviewed everybody involved in the incident, and I've not heard anything from anyone that would lead me to believe that anything was out of line."

After Williams was restrained, he was evaluated by EMTs and was taken to the hospital for medical clearance. He is in the Cook County jail awaiting transport to a detention center, where he will be serving a two-year sentence on two counts of selling cocaine.
