The Lea County Jail has released the video showing two inmates attacked a guard. 

Gabriel Rodriguez and Justin Hobbs are charged with kidnapping and conspiracy following the attack at the facility in March. 

Surveillance footage shows the men attacking the guard as they were being moved to another pod. Video shows the inmates overpower the man, then beat and restrain him, eventually pulling him into the control center with them. 

They spend some time inside before other guards arrive to help. Hobbs admitted to investigators the men were high during the incident.
