Two Baxter County Detention Center inmates facing sex-related charges now stand accused of beating up another inmate during a recent jail fight. Thirty-six-year-old Bradley Uren of Gassville and 21-year-old Devontae Sipps of Mountain Home are each facing a felony count of second-degree battery.

According to an incident report, a jailer in the tower witnessed on camera Uren arguing with the victim in the A pod on Feb. 7. Uren allegedly began hitting the victim and later placed him in a headlock in an effort to choke him out. Uren let go of the victim and walked away, but Sipps soon reportedly attacked him. Sipps is accused of hitting the victim, throwing foam padding from a mat at him and hitting him again.

Another jailer was advised of a fight in the pod. The jailer located the victim with several gashes to his head, and he was grabbing his chest while being assessed. He was later picked up by Baxter Regional Medical Center ambulance personnel.

Uren is already facing several charges, including three counts of rape, with bond at $520,370. Sipps is also facing multiple charges, including two felony counts of sexual indecency with a child, with bond at $10,000.
