Caleb Davis

​On March 17 at around 6:30 p.m. Sebastian County deputies responded to the Mansfield Juvenile Treatment Center in reference to a fight between several juveniles.  

Upon arrival, the fight had already been broken up by staff members.  It was relayed to deputies that the fight had taken place between male and female juvenile detainees.  EMS was on scene, but no one had to be transported to the hospital.    

​As deputies continued to investigate, they discovered one staff member had been injured during the fight and had been assaulted by a male detainee.  They also determined a female detainee had tried to escape during the altercation.  

​As they were going to speak to another male detainee, deputies witnessed a staff member tell one of the males to be questioned to sit down.  The detainee was handcuffed behind his back.  As the deputies watched, the staff member kicked the detainee in his thigh area and forced him to the ground.  

​Deputies arrested staff member Caleb Davis, 25, of Huntington.  Davis had told deputies he was the staff supervisor on duty.  He was arrested for 3rd degree battery. He was booked into The Sebastian County Adult Detention Center and was given a $1,000 bond.  He has since bonded out of jail.      

​Also arrested was a 16 year old male female detainee for 2nd degree battery and a 14 year old female detainee for 3rd degree attempted escape. They were taken to the Sebastian County Juvenile Detention Center.
