A video, which was streamed live on Facebook in May, surfaced on Tuesday. It shows three Oklahoma County Jail inmates grilling food while apparently smoking a joint.

“You see that? This is how we do this (expletive) up in the county,” an inmate inside the jail is heard saying in the video, reported News 4.

The video shows the inmates, identified as 31-year-old Artis Dixon, 33-year-old Quanterell Ellison and 23-year-old Hasheem Coleman, cooking inside the jail. “This is the real deal, holy field my (expletive),” one of the inmates says in the video.

Apart from preparing food over an open flame, the three also seem to be smoking a joint. “You, you a (expletive) we gonna get you when they’re not with you,” one of the inmates is heard saying.

Later, Dixon was held and charged with two counts of possession of contraband by an inmate.

This comes two months after an officer working for the Oklahoma County Criminal Justice Authority started investigating drug and cell phone “drops” at the jail. Court documents revealed that during a March 5 cell search, 23 cell phones, 243 grams of marijuana, 476 grams of tobacco, one used syringe, two piece of metal with a sharpened edge, multiple SIM card packages and other items were found.

Three inmates, Kevin Folks, Preston Ray Barnard and Glenn Paul Marshall, were charged in connection with the case. Jeremy Thomas Haggard, Izayah Diamal Jenkins and Dominic Branson Buckaloo are also facing charges for helping the inmates take the items inside the prison.

As per the documents, on March 11, a witness saw a person running through an open gate and up to the prison. The documents allege, “It was also reported that this individual tied a bag to a rope that was hanging out of the building and when the suspect ran away, the inmates in the cell pulled the bag up the building and in through the hole in the wall.”

On Tuesday, the facility lost its certification to keep juvenile offenders after the state Health Department made an unannounced visit.

Lately, the jail has been in news for various reasons. In March, a hostage situation in the jail left a corrections officer injured and an inmate dead, reported Fox News.
