Florida inmate Isaac Brevil, 35, of Delray Beach was arrested while still in jail on a slew of new charges after attacking a Flagler County detention deputy with a plunger and fighting with three more deputies in the Sheriff Perry Hall Detention Center.

The attack began around 1700 hours on October 27th when Brevil was given a plunger to unclog the toilet in his cell. After he finished, he refused to return the plunger to detention deputies through the cell’s meal door opening when he was ordered to do so.

Brevil continued to ignore the deputies commands and broke the plunger handle in half. Now he was now armed with two sharpened sticks. He then blocked the meal door opening with a blanket and put his mattress up against the door in an attempt to keep deputies from using spray.

Deputies then used “clear out” spray to deescalate the situation, but that had no effect on Brevil.

Detention deputies then made entry to cell and Brevil attempted to stab them with the sharp wooden handles. Brevil was unsuccessful as the deputies body armor did the job and prevented injury.

Brevil was finally subdued after a deputy tased him, but one of the deputies suffered a broken elbow.

Sheriff Rick Staly added “During the struggle to regain control of this violent offender one Deputy’s elbow was fractured. This is a prime example of just how dangerous a Detention Deputy’s job can be. They are the invisible heroes keeping our community safe from people like this.”

Brevil was in the Flagler Jail after being arrested back in September this year for fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer after taking off during a traffic stop. Brevil was headed to Palm Beach County on a warrant for carjacking after serving his time in Flagler County, but it looks like Palm Beach is going to have to wait.

Now Brevil is facing four counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence.
