Las Vegas police are reporting that nine prisoners were traveling on a  private transport van when they and Nevada Highway Patrol had to respond to the area of Blue Diamond Road and Buffalo Drive.

Three prisoners reportedly became combative, threatened to assault the guards, and began trying to flip the van over by rocking it.

Arriving officers removed the three combative prisoners from the van, their restraints were re-secured and they were placed back inside.  All of the prisoners were cooperative with the police officers who responded.
