The brawl, which the BBC said took place on Dec. 6, occurred at Attridgeville Correctional Centre, where the six-time Paralympic medalist is serving time for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. It has since spawned an investigation, the report added, "to establish the facts and to ensure that appropriate action is taken as incidents of assaults are not allowed."
The London Evening Standard, citing an unnamed source, suggests that "fellow inmates became incensed" when Pistorius "refused to hang up" during scheduled time at the prison phone.
Originally sentenced to five years in prison after the murder of Steenkamp, Pistorius has since seen his prison time escalate on two occasions -- first to six years and then, in November, after appeals from prosecutors, to more than 13.
