RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities in Rapid City say a 21-year-old inmate in full restraints broke a window and resisted a sheriff's deputy Friday after his sentencing.
The Pennington County Sheriff's Office says John Shaw Jr. was transported to a Rapid City hospital for injuries sustained from breaking the window.
A deputy was transporting Shaw from a court hearing on the first floor of the courthouse Friday morning when he broke a window in the corridor as he departed the courtroom.
Police say that several other people became involved in the disturbance and two others were arrested.
No other injuries were reported.
Shaw was being sentenced on charges of aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm at a structure or vehicle, reckless discharge of a firearm while intoxicated and grand theft.
