The deputy was transporting her to a work-release program. She fled after learning she wouldn’t be accepted for the program, police. She was still wearing handcuffs when she ran out of the lobby, police said.

Robert Anderson, the deputy who was transporting Howell, was placed on administrative leave and an internal affairs investigation is underway.
