LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. - A woman tried to make a getaway inside the Logan County Jail.

Tajuana Christopher was caught with drugs near a school.

Chief Deputy Rich Stephens said, "She was here in court today to answer for those charges in court today. She was out on bond, the court remanded her to the custody of the sheriff's office and she was arrested in court."

After the judge's decision, she walked down the hallway and made threatening remarks to the deputy.

She then managed to squeeze out of her handcuffs and tied to make a run for the stairs.

Stephens said, "Down the stairs was just another set of deputies waiting at the metal detective area so she wouldn't have been able to escape."

The deputy was able to quickly catch her, but she continued to put up a fight.

Lawmen say she has been difficult to work with.  They say she has even threatened bodily harm to jailers.

Trying to flee from her previous felony has landed Christopher with another felony.

Christopher is being held in the Logan County Jail without bond.
