JEFFERSON COUNTY, KY (CNN) - Surveillance video captured some dramatic moments in a Kentucky courtroom as an inmate tried to escape custody.  A Jefferson County official said the suspect had already had his time before the judge when he attacked a deputy.  

So, he was being kept in a holding cell.  But when police tried to get another inmate out of the same holding cell, the suspect charged the door and pushed another deputy back.  

The two stumbled into a courtroom, where court officers quickly piled on the inmate.
 
Now, the suspect is facing attempted escape and assault charges.  Police have not released his name or initial charges.
