SANDY, Utah (AP) — Police say a man arrested on suspicion of burglary tried to escape by jumping from the window of a moving patrol car while his hands were still cuffed behind his back.
KSL-TV reported Wednesday that 20-year-old Nicholas Duffy was being driven to Salt Lake County Jail when he complained of feeling ill and said he was going to vomit.
An officer lowered a rear window slightly.
Duffy unbuckled himself minutes later and climbed out the window while the vehicle was traveling at about 30 mph on Interstate 15.
Police say Duffy was quickly taken back into custody and brought to a local hospital for minor injuries.
He was wanted on several outstanding warrants when he was arrested Tuesday.
