COLLEGE STATION, Tx (KYLE) — A College Station man arrested for public intoxication is now facing more serious charges after police say he escaped their custody.
Kenneth Wallen was arrested Saturday in the 200 block of College Main for public intoxication.
While awaiting transport to the College Station jail, police say Wallen somehow escaped the mobile transport van as they were filling out paperwork for a separate arrest.
Wallen took off but police were able to catch up to him a short while later.
In addition to his public intoxication charge, he's now also charged with escape from custody.
