Accused murderer Bass Webb was allegedly involved in a disturbance at the Lexington-Fayette County Detention Center over the weekend.

According to Sgt. Jennifer Taylor, public information officer for the Detention Center, Webb and four others, three of whom are also facing murder charges, the dispute started when the five men were told to put on regular shoes after playing basketball in shower shoes Sunday evening.

Once the incident began, the men then allegedly refused to return to their cells.

The men were placed in more restrictive cells following the disturbance.
