Arizona officials released a video of a prison riot from March that shows inmates jumping over fences, throwing rocks, lighting several fires and even an unexplained explosion.

The riot started when guards were escorting an inmate believed to be drunk across the prison yard.

When he tried to assault the officers, a riot broke out.

Before that happened, one inmate had been shot and killed by an officer and 35 were injured.

Ten of those were prison employees.
