Search underway for prisoner who fled Houston courthouse
HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities are searching for a 21-year-old man who fled a Houston courthouse after his bond was revoked during a court hearing.
Investigators say a judge on Thursday had ordered that Jaquaylyn Momon’s bond on an aggravated assault charge be revoked after he had failed a drug test.
Authorities say that before Momon could be taken into custody, he fled from the downtown courtroom.
He was last seen on foot, wearing a blue shirt and blue pants.
Deputies say he has tattoos on his neck, is about 5-foot-8 and weighs 130 pounds.
