An altercation over coronavirus tests broke out between federal immigration detainees and officers at a detention center in Massachusetts, ending with three detainees sent to a hospital and $25,000 in damage to the center, authorities said.

The incident Friday at the C. Carlos Carreiro Immigration Detention Center in Bristol County also sparked calls for an investigation of what occurred.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said Friday that 10 ICE detainees refused to go to the center's medical unit for testing for coronavirus after "each reported having at least two symptoms of COVID-19."
