NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Five maximum security inmates in Norfolk made some interesting demands this week.
According to Norfolk City Jail spokeswoman Paula Miller, the inmates barred themselves in their cell on Tuesday, April 16. One of them demanded a reduced sentence; the others insisted on getting a cell phone, a call to the governor and Chinese food.
Miller said the inmates used bed sheets to tie their cell door shut. After two hours of negotiations, guards forced their way into the jail cell.
Miller said none of them received their demands. "Of course we're not going to give it to them," she told WAVY.com.
Each of the involved inmates now has an individual cell.
