A scuffle over snoring led to two Mower County Jail inmates being separated Wednesday evening.

A 51-year-old male inmate confronted his 42-year-old cellmate about his noisy sleeping habit. The two began to argue, leading the 42-year-old to strike the other man several times in the back of his head, according to a sheriff’s department report.

Jail staff were able to separate the men and move them to different cells.
