Following fights, three Lubbock inmates face new charges
Three inmates at the Lubbock County Detention Center face new charges after a pair of brawls this week.
Jailers report Arthur Manahan, a murder suspect, attacked a deputy during meal time. Investigators say the jailer issued Manahan a bunk restriction for missing a head county and Manahan retaliated against him.
The two fought briefly before other deputies were able to get Manahan back into his cell. He is now charged with assault on a public servant, enhanced by his prior convictions.
Manahan is in the Detention Center awaiting trial for a murder in 2018. He is accused of shooting and killing Ashaundre Grimes, 21, in a parking lot near Parkway Drive and Zenith Avenue. If convicted on the murder charge he faces up to life in prison with the possibility for parole.
The other fight at the jail was not related. Deputies say James Dora was in the day room and attacked two jailers reprimanding him for rules violations.

When Deangilo Hill saw the fight, investigators say he jumped in. Deputies report Dora resisted a Taser at one point and kept attacking one of the jailers until he fell to the ground. This is when other jailers were able to separate them and get Dora and Hill back to their cells.
One deputy went to the hospital to get checked out. The other did not need treatment. Both Dora and Hill are charged with assault on a public servant, which is a third degree felony.
Dora is awaiting trial related to the death of a man last year. He is charged with aggravated robbery after the death of Tyshaun Bates at the Lubbock Square Apartments in April 2019. Investigators say he was part of a plot to Rob Bates. Two others are charged with the robbery. And two other people are charged with Bates' murder. If convicted on the aggravated robbery charge, Dora faces up to life in prison with the possibility for parole.
Hill is awaiting trial for aggravated assault. Prosecutors charged him with a drive-by shooting in June 2018. Police say he drove by a group of people near 37th Street and Avenue U, spraying bullets into the crowd and into several vehicles, then sped off. A teenage girl was hit; she survived.
If convicted of this first degree felony, Hill also faces up to life in prison with the possibility for parole.
