A Pasco man says three of his cellmates at the Franklin County Jail sexually assaulted him with a hot sauce bottle. 

The alleged perpetrators appear to have done it as a joke. Franklin Co. Sheriff Jim Raymond says inmates should never have been given glass bottles. Condiments will be provided in single-serving packets in the future.

The three cellmates were 19, 19 and 20 years old and all incarcerated on serious drug charges. The victim says they attacked him and held his head down with a towel. He did not resist and simply waited until the incident was over.
