Inmate escapes Garland County Sheriff’s Deputies in Hot Springs Arkansas

New video released on Monday shows how an inmate at the Garland County Jail was able to escape on Sunday afternoon.

According to the Garland County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO), 33-year-old Derrick Estell was speaking  on the inmate phone in the booking area near a service window, when William Harding engaged the two deputies in conversation that diverted their attention from the window.

As the deputies stepped away to find answers to questions Harding was asking, Estell jumped on the counter, slid through the window and started running.

A deputy chased Estell through the parking lot into a nearby alley, where GCSO says Tamara Upshaw was waiting in a car with the passenger door open.

Estell closed the door and Upshaw drove away as the deputy tried to bust out the passenger window, causing injury to his hands, according to GCSO.
