Drug suspect on the loose after daring escape courtroom escape caught on camera
An Ohio drug convict mounted a daring, caught-on-camera escape from custody during his sentencing earlier this week, a report said.
Nickolaus Garrison, 34, has been on the run since Tuesday, when he shook loose from deputies and fled the Highland County Courthouse, where he was to be sentenced on a felony meth possession charge, WKRC reported.
Footage from the courthouse shows Garrison break loose from two deputies as he was being led into a courtroom. He then runs out and down a flight of stairs with the deputies in tow.
One deputy is seen leaping over the railing and onto the staircase in a frantic attempt to tackle Garrison. The deputy suffered broken ribs and a possible concussion during the fall, the station reported.
County officials are asking for the public’s help in locating Garrison. He faces up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $2,500.
