HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. (WRCB)-- An inmate at the Hamilton County jail tried to escape police custody Friday.

According the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, the inmate attempted to break free while being taken from a courtroom.

The officers transporting the inmate had to take an alternate route down a set of stairs because the elevator wasn't working.

Police say the inmate didn't assault any of the officers and the incident was quickly resolved.

Eyewitness News is working to find out when repairs will be made to the elevator.
