Shock Video: Inmates Shooting Up, Toting Guns

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 11) The federal government is taking a hard look at the Orleans Parish Prison (OPP) in New Orleans after an undercover video showed drug use, gambling -- and most shocking-- inmates playing with a loaded gun.

And listen to this: An inmate was even spotted out partying along Bourbon Street in the French Quarter when he was supposed to be locked up.

This prison is also a target for sexual assualts on inmates; More then 700 assaults were reported last year.

The feds are looking to take over control of the prison.
