Escapee Asked Guard for Directions, Report Says

More details on the escape last week of Ronald Tackman, the inmate who was able to walk out of jail because he was wearing a suit for trial and was mistaken for a lawyer.  After someone left a holding-area door unlocked, Tackman walked out and into an empty courtroom, where he was challenged by a court officer.

“Counselor, what are you doing here?” the officer said.  “Which way is out?” Tackman responded.  The officer – or, as this report described him, “the hapless guard” – then helpfully showed Tackman the way to the lobby.

Tackman has not been seen since, except briefly by his mom.
