A Perry County jail inmate escapes from the hospital again, but this time, he didn't get very far.
Jail officials say Rodney Stamper got into a minor altercation with his guard and made it to the parking lot before his attempted escape came to an end.
This is at least the third time Stamper has tried to get away.
He was in the hospital for self-mutilation.
The jail administrator says the guard assigned to Stamper has been let go for disobeying direct orders to shackle Stamper and handcuff him to the bed.
Stamper is in custody once again at the hospital.
