This is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

Humboldt County Sheriff badgeOn Friday, April 7, 2017 at about 1635 hours, a Senior Correctional Deputy working in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility was assaulted by inmate Alexi Greenspan who is currently in custody serving a sentence for a violation of probation.

Two Deputies were in the process of escorting Greenspan from the processing area of the jail to his assigned housing location when Greenspan suddenly attacked the Senior Correctional Deputy striking him in the face with a closed fist.

The Senior Correctional Deputy sustained moderate injuries and was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital for treatment. It was determined he will have to undergo surgical procedures and possibly be flown out of the area to make a full recovery.

Greenspan has been booked on charges of assault and battery of a custodial officer, battery causing serious injury and obstructing an executive officer. The case has been submitted to the District Attorney for prosecution.



  • Oh he will be sitting in max for his duration of his stay at Humboldt County Correctional Facility.

  • Too many asses out there!

  • the POS judges in this county will just let that POS out again to attack other people, I say we lock up the judge who let him out on probation

  • Covelo or busted

    There is a reason he WANTED max…. let him in w/ the others…. he will either have mucho street crud…. or….. get put in with BUBBAH….

  • Ya I don’t think he’s going anywhere for awhile, on another note if he did that to you or me he would probably be out the same day, go figure

  • There is no Bubba in humboldt county jail. Just common sari. Tv. 3square meals a day. And if you’re not reading or playing basketball you get to take a nap.

    • Well that’s disappointing, so even if they don’t get out its like summer camp but you can’t go outside? No wonder none of them care about being arrested. I don’t know if it’s true but I hear you can get all the drugs you want in there too, just costs more.


        You should really think before you make a comment on something you know nothing about.Deputies in prison (not all but alot) abuse their authority every single day .Yes its right that when we break the law we deserve to be punished but, that doesn’t mean to treat us like animals while paying our dues..It could happen to anyone of us so before we start throwing stones lets move out of the GLASS HOUSE LIFE CAN GO FROM REAL GOOD TO REAL BAD IN THE BLINK OF SN EYE.FOOD FOR THOUGHT GOD BLESS .

        • Your right…some not all in law enforcement abuse their positions. Then a inmate will take it out on another officer. Have seen it happened when I was a correction officer.
          But it is also Not right to treat the inmates like dirt. You respect them they respect you. That’s the name of the game in jail or prison…respect !!

      • hit a nerve there? What did I say that offended you so much? I’m far from perfect and I wasn’t throwing stones, take a few breaths and relax. I can’t stand authority but then again that’s why I don’t brake the law.


    3 out of three brothers institutionalized for life(thug life?).one for double homicide.let him rot.

  • Veterans friend

    Flown out for treatment…again…will we EVER have a hospital in Humboldt that can actually DO medical stuff? This guy was hit with a fist. He didn’t fall from an airplane.
