A Denton man was still in custody Thursday after he was recaptured Wednesday, the culmination of an escape attempt from a Denton County courtroom, according to reports.
The incident began around 10 a.m. Wednesday when Alberto Guadalupe Contreras, 19, was in the courtroom for a hearing on charges of driving while intoxicated, assault with bodily injury, criminal mischief and failure to appear.
But, while a bailiff was in a holding cell with another prisoner, Contreras simply left the courts building, according to reports.
When deputies caught up with a few hours later, he resisted arrest and was shot in the arm, officials said.
Jail records showed Thursday that he was in custody, facing four charges, including resisting arrest. Bail was set at $4,500 total for three charges -- $1,500 each -- but no bond amount was listed for resisting arrest.
