- The 19-year-old man charged with firing the stray bullet that struck and killed 11-year-old Takiya Holmes was beaten by a Cook County Jail inmate while awaiting his bond hearing at a county courthouse.
The beating was captured on video and released Thursday by the Cook County Sheriff's Office.
The surveillance video captured an inmate approaching a dozing Antwan Jones while he was handcuffed to a chair in street clothes before his bond hearing Wednesday at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse on murder charges in Holmes' shooting death.
The guy doing the punching is himself, inside for murder, so he's got nothing to lose and all sorts of reputation to gain. Amusing to say the least.
