Facing 60 Days In Jail, He Flees The Courthouse. Now He Faces More Time

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene with the story of a lesson not learned. In Wadsworth, Ohio, Cyrus Matthews was in court being sentenced. His offense - road rage. Mr. Matthews was not happy as the judge was reading that he would serve 60 days in prison, so he ran out of the courthouse, got into a car, sped off and crashed into an SUV. Police got him back. He is likely to face a felony charge for fleeing. And - what do I know? - but maybe put him in handcuffs in the courtroom this time. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
