Man escapes police car, later found, jailed

  • Follow Latest News

A man on the way to jail Friday managed to get his handcuffs in front of him, damage a cruiser window and make his escape, a report shows.

The deputy was on Old Waynesboro Road at 4-H Club Road in Hephzibah when Scott Schmidt crawled out the car and bolted into the woods, a report states.

He was found 20 minutes later around 9 p.m. at the dead end of Longpoint Drive and taken back into custody, this time on additional charges of escape and interference with government property.

People need to serve the time

People need to serve the time they are given. Repeat offenders are a blight on our society. These people get out early, defy probation, place police officers in harms way, are a danger to the public and theirselves, etc. Do the crime, do the time.... Judges and parole officers need to get with the program and if we need more jails, then so be it. It is these repeat offenders that are the ones recruiting others into their lifestyles.

Once again, after Corgi posts

Once again, after Corgi posts his wonderful record for us, more proof that these judges need to stop being so dang lenient!! He didn't learn from his 1st time, or 2nd time, etc.
I thought maybe this would have been about the previous guy who also escaped RCSD custody wearing handcuffs!

Corgimom -- Great reporting!

Corgimom -- Great reporting! From the booking photo it appears he was taken to the hospital. I wonder if he used his head to break the window?

Just glad he didn't make it

Just glad he didn't make it back to harm or kill his Ex-girlfriend. I suggest she arm herself as she sure can't count on the law to hold him.

That is not newspeak. Interference with government property is a state law.

@Onecatfish

A police cruiser is government property. Who do you think those cruisers belong to? They belong to the Richmond County government
