A suspect tried to escape police custody Monday after his hearing at the Jefferson County Courthouse.
A spokesperson with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said first and
foremost no one's security was ever at risk and Monday’s attempted
escape is an example of how courtroom security works.
The inmate had already been in court for his hearing when he attacked a deputy.
The man was placed in a holding cell after his hearing and when they
tried to get another inmate out of the same cell, police said he charged
the door and pushed the deputy back as he was trying to escape.
The inmate and the deputy then stumble into a courtroom.
The inmate made it about 20 ft. before he was tackled and deputies took control.
Police have not released the inmates name or his original charges, but
did say he is now charged with attempted escape and assault.
