BOISE, Idaho, Jan. 5, 2018 – At the request of the Idaho Department of Correction, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a disturbance involving members of two security threat groups at Idaho Maximum Security Institution.

The disturbance began at 4:06 p.m.Thursday. Seventeen inmates were involved. Five of the inmates were taken to a local hospital for treatment. None of their injuries are life-threatening. No IMSI staff members were hurt.

Because of the disturbance, all visiting is canceled this weekend at IMSI.

As it does in the case of all serious assaults in the South Boise Correctional Complex, IDOC contacted the Ada County Sheriff’s Office to help investigate the disturbance.

IMSI is a 549-bed maximum security men’s prison south of Boise.
