Two former Oklahoma County jail guards and their supervisor were charged on Monday after they forced inmates to listen to “Baby Shark,” for hours.
Christian Miles and Gregory Butler, both 21 and former Oklahoma County Jail detention officers, as well as their former supervisor, 50 year-old Christopher Hendershott were all charged with cruelty to prisoners, corporal punishment to an inmate and conspiracy on Monday.
On at least five occasions in November and December last year Christian Miles and Greg Butler Jr placed inmates in an empty attorney visitation room then forced them to stand for two hours while handcuffed.
“Baby Shark” was played on repeat, through a computer, while the inmate was forced to listen to it.
The song was “said to be a joke between Miles and Butler,” Mr. Miles told investigators.
The guards were said to be trying to discipline the inmates and “teach them a lesson.”
