WISN Milwaukee reports that an inmate allegedly started a fight with another inmate over his singing earlier today. Dustin Hampton, 33, is a current inmate in the Racine County, Wisconsin jail, and has now been charged with battery by prisoners over a fight about country music.

Jail staff offered statements to police that they had to break up a fight on Monday between Hampton and another inmate. Hampton claimed he was annoyed with the other man singing country songs in the day room while walking around. Hampton asked the man to stop and he refused.

Surveillance videos revealed footage of Hampton approaching the other inmate while he was eating before pushing him with both hands. The other man fell out of his chair and hit his head before the fight approached a climax and had to be defused by guards.
