ELKTON -- Out-of-state police were called to help with a riot that broke out at a maximum-security tier of the Cecil County Detention Center early yesterday, officials said. The incident began about 4 a.m. when a correctional officer discovered a 26-year-old inmate bleeding from two wounds, said Capt. Linda S. Lannen, deputy director of the detention center, in an e-mail statement. After medics were called, 16 or so other inmates in the maximum-security tier "began destroying property and refused to be placed back in the cells," Lannen said.
