Ward County inmate’s jaw broken in fight over ramen noodles
MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Ward County Jail inmate is charged with breaking another inmate’s jaw in two places during a fight over ramen noodles.
The Minot Daily News reports that 32-year-old Jesse Levi Jones, of Kenmare, is charged with aggravated assault, a Class C felony.
Court documents show that the incident happened after 26-year-old inmate David Pieper Jr. accused Jones of stealing seven ramen noodle packages and a bowl from Pieper’s cell. Pieper was unable to talk about the fight but gave a written account to investigators.
Authorities say security cameras showed Jones punching Pieper.
Jones faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison. His attorney did not immediately respond to an email request for comment.
