“The officer had multiple inmates in his custody at that time. One of the inmates was able to commandeer the van as the other inmates were taken into the jail. The inmate was shackled, handcuffed and had belly chains, what have you,” Sheriff Randy Tucker said. "The van door was open. He was able to jump into the driver's seat of the van, which was running."
