Farrar said two cellblocks were secured by state police and prison guards by 5:46 a: m. today and another dormitory was secured later. Tear gas was not needed when police swept through Cellblock 1, but it was used to rout inmates in Cellblock 2. The inmates were forced into a yard behind the building before being placed in other facilities. Police officers were able to regain control of one cellblock without the use of tear gas but tear gas was used as officers moved into a second cellblock. Inmates in both those cellblocks were forced into a yard behind the buildings and were placed temporarily in a recreational dorm. Police officers were moving into cellblock C-3 at dawn with the dorms still under inmate control. "The administration can only guess at the cause of the thing," said the spokesman. "There was trouble brewing all day yesterday." The spokesman said trouble apparently began at the noon meal but order was quickly restored. At dinner, two men attacked a guard and the incident erupted into the takeover.
