Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator says the arrests involved separate cases. He says 29-year-old Allan Bigham Brown, II, who's been employed with CJDC for five years, was arrested on two simple battery counts. He's accused of pinning a 15-year-old boy down, leaning on him with his weight, and pushing his elbows into the boy's chest.

And 45-year-old Irma Jean Williams is accused of slapping a 15-year-old boy in the mouth with the back of her hand. She faces one simple battery charge. She's been with the detention center for eight years.
