WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Seven deputies or jail workers have been disciplined after a pressure washer was allegedly used on a prisoner inside a central Georgia lockup.

Houston County Sheriff Cullen Talton said three deputies have been suspended without pay and are being fired. Four jailers were given unpaid suspensions of two or five days.

Talton says jailers used the pressure washer on a prisoner who was wiping human waste on himself and the walls of a padded cell.

Talton says the incident happened June 9, but he didn't learn about it for a few weeks because the workers kept it quiet.

The sheriff says the inmate wasn't injured, but deputies and jailers violated rules at the jail in Warner Robins.
