CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A riot at the Al Cannon Detention Center on Sunday started after an inmate's canteen was stolen, according to court documents.

An affidavit states Cleveland Clarence Major, Devonte Brown, Shoan Monzell Brown and Norman Tiashawn Pringle were charged with rioting after the incident. 

According to investigators, Major threw the first punch in a dispute over a canteen which he says was stolen by three inmates.

An affidavit states that Major and Pringle threw punches, knocked over tables and chairs. Court records state Green and Brown were then seen running between Major and Pringle.

Authorities say Brown threw punches and struck one of the inmates as detention officers were attempting to intervene. According to authorities, Green also swung a chair and struck one of the inmates.

Bond was set at $100,000 for the four men on Monday.
