Police: Escaped inmate tried to hail cab from hospital
BEAVER, Pa. (AP) —
Sheriff's deputies said a Beaver County jail inmate wearing an orange-and-white striped uniform tried to hail a taxi to escape from a hospital where he was taken for medical treatment.
Officials said Holden Wooley, 23, was taken to Heritage Valley Beaver Hospital on Saturday night after a reported seizure. Deputies said at one point during his four-hour hospital visit, Wooley went outside to hail a cab -- but the driver refused to pick up Wooley.
When hospital security officers tried to grab him, Wooley ran into the woods and was arrested a couple hours later when police used a K-9 officer and a stun gun to subdue him. He was treated for a dog bite at the hospital and returned to jail.
