A former inmate at the northern Oregon Correctional Facility in the Dalles is suing the jail, alleging excessive force by a deputy. Chadwick Yancey says he was complaining about jail conditions to a Sergeant when a deputy slammed him against a wall. He says he had trouble bleeding and was afraid his teeth were gone. He says he remembers having a mouth full of blood and feeling shards of teeth in his mouth. The suit is calling for changes at the jail and is also asking for undetermined damages from a jury.
