RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A potential escape plan being discussed by inmates over the weekend was prevented by the actions of Rutherford County Adult Detention Center deputies.

According to a release from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, the individuals who spoke of the plan have been identified and placed in isolation. The investigation is ongoing and charges may be pending.

Chief Deputy Keith Lowery said the detention center administration verified the escape was not plausible.
