A Scott County, Missouri police chief says an Illinois man tried to run out of a courtroom after the judge ordered him into police custody.

Miner Police Chief Chris Griggs says Frederick B. Carter appeared in a city court room.

Griggs says when the judge ruled that Carter should go to jail, he took off running through the court.

Griggs says he and a Sikeston detective stopped Carter and arrested him after a fight in the courtroom.

Carter was taken to the Miner Jail under $25,000 bond.
