Man Escapes Police Car During Another Arrest in Cottage Hills

MADISON COUNTY, Il. (KMOX) – A 43-year-old man escaped from Madison County deputies this morning in Cottage Hills as they were trying to arrest someone else.

Captain Mike Dixon says the man was arrested without incident on felony battery offenses. He somehow got out of the squad car and ran away while deputies were trying to arrest someone else.

Police caught him less than an hour later.

Dixon says the man, who’s not yet been identified because formal charges haven’t been filed, now also faces escape charges.
