Prisoner tries to escape … runs into courtroom

When a Kentucky prisoner broke out of his cell and tried to escape police custody, he picked the wrong door … because he ended up in a packed courtroom.

The man had been put in a holding cell after his hearing at Jefferson County Courthouse in Louisville, but when cops tried to remove another prisoner from the same cell, he decided to make a break for it.

He charges the door and pushed his way past a deputy sheriff before bursting through a door which he hoped would lead him to freedom.

Instead he ended up a courtroom that was in-session (and filled with CCTV cameras) where he was promptly tackled by court bailiffs, and it appears one attorney.
Footage shows lawyers and defendants in the ongoing case running for cover as the judge looks shocked at what was happening.
