A police officer experienced a scare while on the road early Friday when an inmate went out of control.
The Frankfort police officer was taking a mental patient from Franklin County to Eastern State Hospital in Lexington when officers say the woman went berserk inside the cruiser.
At that time, the officer was at the I-75/I-64 northern split.
That officer notified Lexington Police and called for backup.
The officer was able to deploy his taser on the inmate.
She was eventually taken to Eastern State Hospital. The officer wasn't hurt but was shaken up.
