FILE - In a file frame grab from video obtained by The Associated Press, an inmate attacks fellow inmate Hanni Elabed at the privately-run Idaho Correctional Center just south of Boise, Idaho. The Corrections Corp. of America-run Idaho Correctional Center remains the most violent lockup in Idaho. Records obtained by The Associated Press show that while ICC only has about 23 percent more inmates than the next largest prison, it had more than three times the number of reported inmate-on-inmate assaults last year.
