CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Department of Corrections
says a prison guard at Warm Springs Correctional Center was treated
at a hospital and released after he was attacked by two inmates.

Officials say Officer Sean Lagier was attacked around 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday with what appeared to be a sharpened piece of wire or
fencing at the Carson City prison. Other officers quickly
intervened and quelled the situation.

Lagier was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center, where he was
treated and released Tuesday night. He suffered cuts, bruises and
lacerations.

Department of Corrections Director Greg Cox says two inmates
identified as being involved in the assault have been transferred
to Ely State Prison, a maximum security penitentiary.

Warm Springs Correctional Center remained in lockdown Wednesday
as the department's inspector general's office investigates.
