MARNE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say they've captured a prisoner
who escaped in handcuffs while being transported through central
Newark police say 25-year-old Joshua Homan was caught shortly
after 7 a.m. Friday following an overnight manhunt in Licking
County, east of Columbus. He was taken to a hospital after being
outside wearing just a T-shirt and jeans in temperatures that
dipped into the single digits.
Police said Homan got away at a gas station Thursday night when
a sheriff's deputy stopped while taking him back to eastern Ohio's
Tuscarawas County. Authorities said Homan was
wanted there on charges including abduction, domestic violence and
intimidation of a witness. They had warned residents that they
considered him dangerous.
