Judge catches suspect as he and another try to escape

Local News

A pair of suspects who thought they could escape from a Washington courtroom weren’t counting on one thing; here comes the judge!

After a hearing, Judge R. W. Buzzard ordered two inmates back to jail, but they had other plans.  The two bolt for the door.  Judge Buzzard quickly ditches his robe and takes off after the inmates.  

Cameras caught the pair scurrying through the courthouse.  Just as one of the handcuffed men makes it out of an exit, Buzzard catches the other.
