A prison surveillance video obtained by KTSM appears to show Anchondo throwing punches in the Dona Ana County Detention Facility on Monday.

Two other inmates were involved in the brawl. Security guards stepped in to break up the fight.

According to court records, Anchondo was charged with battery following the incident, to which he pleaded not guilty. He was arraigned on Wednesday.
