Hardin Co. Jailer Arrested After Fight with Sheriff

HARDIN COUNTY, Ky. -- A fight at the Hardin County Detention center lands one jailer in handcuffs.

 Deputy Jailer Joe Funk was arrested last week after police say he got into a fight with Deputy Sheriff Smith. 

Officer Funk allegedly disagreed about the placement of a backpack that officer Smith was turning in as inmate property. 

Police didn't say how severe Smith's injuries were. Funk had minor injuries to his face and neck. 

Funk was suspended without pay. The Hardin County Sheriff was given copies of the video and incident reports for a review.
