Las Vegas Jailhouse, Season 2, Episode1 premiered on truTV Sunday night along with Episode 2, which shows the goings on at the Clark County Detention Center. Viewers get more insight into the incarcerated as we hear their version of why they are in jail and/or witness their antics. This program is very similar to Inside American Jail, though all pertinent scenes take place in the Las Vegas Jailhouse. 120-plus arrested people are dealt with per shift according to the Season 2, Episode 1 premiere. Most arrestees seem to behave themselves, but they don’t make for engaging reality TV like the drunk and/or combative do.
A Man in His 80s Is Held on the Las Vegas Jailhouse, Season 2, Episode 1 Premiere on truTV
Colleen is the first featured prisoner. She was charged with battery domestic violence on her boyfriend, who is married. She told the Las Vegas jailers that she’s tired of taking care of him and will toss him out of the house after she gets out, but the arresting officer gives a different version, which includes her trouble with alcohol that got her arrested. Cory was charged with DUI, but he’s giving the staff of the Clark County Detention Center trouble, including a lot of cussing. He’s put in a cell all by himself on Season 2, Episode 1 of Las Vegas Jailhouse to sober up before he can be fully booked.
An older gentleman named Danny (who claimed he was in his 80s) was charged with making threatening phone calls. He’s had bad dealings with the Bellagio hotel. The outspoken octogenarian kept calling one of the bald jailers “baldy.” He told jailers his life story, including having a wiener dog and losing millions in a business venture. He was running his mouth off so much that his processing was delayed.
Two arrested “Code 5” persons arrived at the Clark County Detention Center on Las Vegas Jailhouse, Season 2, Episode 1, and were immediately put in restraining chairs. This included Aaron, who was charged with malicious destruction of property. He has a spit mask over his head. Later, he chills out and claims his incarceration was a misunderstanding. James was charged with unlawful use of 911, and is intoxicated and combative. After he’s taken out of the chair, he’s handcuffed to a chair in the general area (due to lack of room elsewhere) because he was allegedly talking about suicide and continued to have a combative attitude.
Season 2, Episode 2 of Las Vegas Jailhouse aired afterwards, with more shenanigans from some of the inmates, including a man arrested for allegedly swimming naked in front of The Mirage.
