Police Struggle To Control Prisoner

More than a dozen fast acting Lexington police officers stop a Wayne County prisoner from possibly escaping.

The prisoner was being transported Thursday to the hospital for mental evaluation by a Wayne County Sheriff's Deputy.

Police say the inmate got loose from his cuffs and chains while the cruiser was on Interstate 75.

The deputy quickly pulled over to get control of the prisoner, but that turned into a struggle, and the deputy called for help.

Within minutes, 15 Lexington police officers and others were on the scene.
