The two inmates who went on a weekend rampage at the Vermont state prison in Saint Johnsbury have been moved to the prison in Springfield and placed in segregation.

Officials are not identifying the two and are playing down the incident.

Corrections Commissioner Robert Hofmann calls Saturday night’s events minor and says they were quickly defused.

He says no other inmates joined the two who threw a cooler at a corrections staff member, assaulted another inmate, smashed a television and damaged other property.

Vermont State Police are investigating. Sergeant John Flannigan says it will be a few days before it’s determined what charges the two men will face.
