Two FL Inmates Fight Over TV, Sent to Hospital

LAND O'LAKES, Fla. (AP) _ Authorities say two jail inmates in
Pasco County were hospitalized after getting into a fight over
which television channel they were going to watch.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says 27-year-old Eli Alvarez
and 34-year-old Donald Royal got into a fight in the community
television room of the jail in Land O'Lakes on Thursday.

The inmates were airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa
because Alvarez appeared to have suffered a head injury. Royal was
treated for scrapes suffered in the fight.

Deputies sprayed the two inmates with pepper spray to break up
the fight. No deputies were hurt.

It was the second fight reported in the jail during the week.
