Inmate Tries To Escape Custody In Kentucky Courtroom
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.
