Littlefield inmate charged after making false claims he was beaten

Posted: Updated:

Investigators report a Littlefield TCCC inmate tried to frame staffers, claiming he was beaten.

Lonnie Welsh, 39, was being transported to a medical appointment outside the Texas Civil Commitment Center when he reportedly scuffled with staffers.

After he was placed in a secure room, he reportedly punched himself then claimed TCCC staffers did it.

According to the warrant, Welsh knew he was lying and all the evidence indicates his injuries were self-inflicted.

Welsh is charged with filing a false report and fabricating evidence.
