Inmates were served beer, vodka and tequila in this apparent low-security prison in Chihuahua.

The deputy director of the facility has been fired, and several guards face legal consequences for allowing a bar to operate inside the jail; inmates even had plasma televisions, marijuana and heroin doses, cell phones and a pool table!

Federal police and state authorities confiscated no small amount of booze—200 beer cans, 12 bottles of tequila, and 20 bottles of vodka.
