Three Mason County Jail employees have resigned after a violent altercation with an inmate.

Darwin Irwin was choked and maced by a deputy jailer early this week while being booked in on an alcohol intoxication charge. Surveillance video shows Irwin yelling at and threatening deputy jailers. That led to a physical altercation in which he was assaulted.

The head jailer Gerald Curtis feels his former employees went too far and asked them to resign.
