Beaver County sheriff's deputies said Holden Wooley, 23, was taken from the county jail to Heritage Valley Beaver when he began having seizures Saturday and while at the facility he called a local taxi service for a ride, The Beaver County Times reported Tuesday.
Chief Deputy Jay Alstadt said the taxi driver arrived at 10:45 p.m. Saturday and refused to transport Wooley, who was dressed in his orange-and-white striped jail jumpsuit.
Wooley fled on foot and was eventually stopped by a K-9 dog and stunned with a Taser around 1 a.m.
Alstadt said Wooley was treated for a dog bite to his leg before being returned to the jail.
Deputies said Wooley, who was jailed on a charge of retail theft, was left at the hospital without an escort because he was not considered an escape risk. Alstadt said Wooley is likely to face an escape charge from Saturday's incident.
