Inmate, armed with soap, want to fight guards

An inmate of the Brandon Correctional Centre is in court today, charged with having a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The alleged weapon is a bar of soap the man shoved into a sock.

Police say that the 25 year old inmate armed himself with the soap-and-sock combo last Friday and then proceeded to challenge some guards to a fight.

The incident was referred to the police yesterday, leading to the charges and today’s court appearance.
