CONROE, Texas -- Texas financier R. Allen Stanford returned to a lockup after being hospitalized for treatment of a concussion following a jail fight.
Court-appointed attorney Kent Schaffer told the Associated Press on Monday that his client had superficial injuries from a fight Thursday.
Details on Stanford's fight with another inmate, at the Joe Corley Detention Facility in Conroe, were not immediately released.
Schaffer said Stanford, who has denied allegations of running a $7 billion Ponzi scheme, had "a concussion, two black eyes, a broken nose."
Schaffer says testing determined the concussion was not a problem any longer. He says Stanford was returned Sunday afternoon to the lockup about 40 miles north of Houston.
Stanford is charged with bilking investors of the now-defunct Stanford Financial Group. Schaffer says a status hearing is Oct. 14.
