CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & -- A Carson City jail inmate is facing a felony battery charge after allegedly hitting a fellow inmate with a mop bucket ringer during a fight, which caused a skull fracture and a laceration to the eye, according to Sheriff Ken Furlong.

Eduardo Reyes, 43, allegedly committed the incident at 11:30pm around Sept. 20.

The assaulted inmate said Reyes hit him in the head with a metal portion of the mop bucket wringing device. Furlong says Reyes was read his Miranda rights in which he admitted to going near the kitchen area to fight with the inmate. As a result of the fight, the inmate got a cut to the right corner of his eye and swelling on his forehead.

The inmate was taken to Carson Tahoe Medical Center for treatment and it was discovered that he suffered a skull fracture from the incident.

Reyes was booked for battery by a prisoner with a deadly weapon with substantial bodily harm. His bail is set at $30,000.
