The Bradley County Jail was so overcrowded last night that officials declined to accept any more prisoners and told patrol officers they may need to keep inmates in their cars overnight, Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. A notice sent to officers said we “will not be taking anyone in on warrants tonight. There are 75 inmates in booking with nowhere to house them. Patrol officers will have to sit in [their] cars until we have room. Which may be until court tomorrow.”
