JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a woman who walked out of the Jacksonville Jail before being booked on a domestic battery charge has been captured.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reports that 32-year-old Trisawanna R. Mitchell was free for about seven hours before officers caught up with her Monday morning. She had been arrested Sunday evening, and authorities say she passed through an open gate that allows police vehicles to enter the jail shortly after midnight. Sgt. Matthew Clements told The Florida Times-Union (https://bit.ly/1lGQUEb) that surveillance footage shows the woman pumping her arms as she ran, indicating she was able to remove at least one hand from handcuffs.

Clements says it is police policy for the arresting officer to stay with suspects until they are booked. He says an investigation will be done.

Details about her initial arrest weren’t immediately available.
