Notorious prison in ‘Code Black’ lockdown as rioting prisoners STOMP on each other’s heads and have to be capsicum sprayed

  • Two prisoners began fighting at the Borallon jail in Queensland on Friday 
  • Three more prisoners joined in and some of them had their heads stomped on 
  • Prison officers had to use capsicum spray and ‘chemical agents’ to break it up 

A notorious prison has been placed into lockdown after a violent fight broke out between five prisoners who were stomping on each other’s heads.

Two prisoners began fighting in a walkway and three others joined in during a brawl on Friday afternoon at the Borallon jail in Queensland. 

Prison officers had to use capsicum spray and ‘chemical agents’ on the prisoners in response and they were able to subdue them.  

It was initially believed a ‘Code Black’ was called but it later was confirmed to be a ‘Code Yellow.’ 

Staff said it should have been the more serious code due to the number of prisoners involved.

A Queensland Corrective Services spokeswoman confirmed a ‘Code Yellow’ was called. 

‘Officers, including Delta Unit officers, responded to the fight, and in line with our procedures, chemical agents were deployed to control the situation,’ the spokeswoman said. 

‘The five prisoners were decontaminated, interviewed by staff and placed on safety orders. Three officers received minor injuries while responding to the incident. 

‘These did not occur while restraining the prisoners. 

‘All officers were offered medical support and a debriefing occurred.’

A ‘Code Silver’ was called at the jail in July after a prisoner climbed on to the roof and the jail was put in lockdown.  

The prisoner remained on the roof for 18 hours until he climbed down after negotiations with officers. 

No one was injured during the incident.
