Inmate Assaulted With Chess Piece In Dispute Over Candy Bars

UNIONTOWN (KDKA) – An inmate in the Fayette County Prison is facing charges for an alleged robbery and assault involving another inmate and a chess piece.

According to the criminal complaint, the incident happened back in October, but charges were filed on Thursday.

Derrick Maddox, 31, is accused of taking several candy bars from an inmate, punching the man twice and forcing him to insert a chess piece in his rectum.

The victim clams Maddox entered his cell, woke him up and told him to hand over his commissary of candy bars. The victim refused and was punched twice in the ribs. During the incident, a chess board was knocked over and some pieces landed on the floor.

At that time, the victim claims Maddox told him to insert one of the pieces into his rectum. The victim said he complied because he was afraid of Maddox.

Police reviewed surveillance footage of the incident, in which the victim can be seen leaving his cell and walking uncomfortably with a wide stance.

Maddox is facing a list of charges including, simple assault, robbery, theft and harassment.
