Inmate at Juvenile Detention Facility charged with battery after hitting another inmate during a fight
Devon Welch, 18, was moved to the Alachua County Jail yesterday after being charged with battery on another detainee at the Juvenile Detention Facility. The victim reported that on June 9, he was sitting in the break room at the facility when a fight broke out between three or four other juveniles in the room. Surveillance video reportedly showed the victim trying to back out of the room to stay out of the fight when Welch allegedly approached him and punched him twice in the face. The victim said he didn’t know why Welch hit him. The video reportedly showed that Welch then turned to join the other fight while the victim ran out of the room.
