Deputies: Intoxicated suspect jumps from Jennings police vehicle

Jennings County deputies say an intoxicated man tried to flee from a patrol car, leading to even more charges.

Deputies were called Friday after witnesses saw a man walking through yards and acting suspiciously on County Road 500W. They found 31-year-old Robert Anderson of Country Squire Lakes walking across State Road 7 and arrested him on suspicion of public intoxication.

However, as he was being taken to jail, he allegedly jumped from the police vehicle about a mile south of County Road 500N. He then ran through a corn field and allegedly fought with police before being taken into custody in a secure jail van.

He is facing charges of escape, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement.
