CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19)--A Clermont County Jail inmate was transported to the hospital after he jumps off of a tier Sunday afternoon.

Around noon, officials say 21-year-old Devin Scott Collins was returning to his cell after lunch when he jumped from the second tire of his cellblock and landed on the dayroom floor below. He had a head injury and possibly a dislocated shoulder.

Emergency crews had Collins transported to University Hospital by Aircare. Officials say that he was alert and conscious when he was transported. So far Collins' condition has not been released.

The incident is under investigation, but officials say that Collins appears to have voluntarily jumped and foul play is not suspected.

Devin Collins was originally arrested for failure to comply with a police officer and resisting arrest.
