Watch: Authorities release video of Jake Patterson fighting New Mexico inmate

New Mexico (WQOW) – We are seeing video for the first time of the moment authorities say Jake Patterson got into a fight with another New Mexico inmate.

Patterson is serving a life sentence for abducting Jayme Closs and killing her parents James and Denise Closs.

In October, authorities said Patterson got into a fight when he was asked about the case.

Back in July, Patterson was quietly transferred from Wisconsin to New Mexico.
