Couldn’t Shiv The Habit

Might be time for prisons to start stocking up on nicotine patches…

Two inmates housed in a smoke-free prison traded a hostage for cigarettes after a six-hour standoff.

Billy Grubb, 32, and Bradley Johnson, 25, attacked the guard Monday night, said Howard Carlton, warden of the Northeast Correctional Complex.

”As the night progressed they started saying, ‘Look, we’ll give up if you let us have some tobacco. If you do that, we’ll go back to our cell,”’ Carlton said. ”They got them some cigarettes, they smoked them and went back to their cell and locked themselves back in.”

I think the moral of this story is pretty obvious: Never take a job as a guard in a smoke-free prison.

    You know you’re not supposed to put them all over your entire body, right?
