SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE)- An inmate at the Bullitt County jail died overnight after fighting with being placed in isolation for eight days.

Shepherdsville attorney Lori Rakes says Melissa Czaja was arrested on a Jefferson County warrant for a traffic violation and owed $43. A family member showed up at the Bullitt County Detention Center to pay it, but didn't have correct change and had to come back later.

In the meantime, Rakes says Czaja was involved in an altercation with a female jailer. Czaja was pushed down and the jailer's glasses were knocked to the floor.

After that, Czaja was charged with assault and placed in isolation for eight days.

The jail says Czaja was going through detox, but Rakes says that was a misdiagnosis. Rakes says Czaja's liver completely shut down and she was vomiting bile.

She died early Tuesday morning at the hospital.

The Bullitt County jailer says the incident is under investigation.

I urge everyone that doesn't want BC to sweep this under the rug and go on with business as ussual, to contact the Ky Attorney General and DEMAND that this be fully investigated and the jailers responsible to be brought to justice!

This woman had a history of arrests for drug use and was known to be violent. She was on probation at the time of her arrest. She cursed and attacked a guard and was placed in solitary. She had hepatitis C from IV drug use and apparently WAS detoxing while locked up. When jailers became concerned that it was more than detox she was transported to the hospital. The jail didn't kill her, her lifestyle did.
Wrong, f uctard. No one checked on her until she came up missing in court! They didn't even know where she was! You BC jail employees can get on here and post all the lies you want, but the truth will come out and you will get burned for this!

i do not doubt this a bit... seems bullitt county makes their own rules as they go... the jail is horrible .. fights are a common occurance and some guards love to slam people on their necks for their own personal anger management problems.... bullitt county jail is one of the worst in the county imo... if your ever there .. watch your mouth as u may end up with fractured vertebre and serious head trauma from bully COs ... burn em... this type of shit has gone on long enough
