CYNTHIANA, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate in Kentucky escaped custody during court.

Harrison County Jailer Steve Slade tells WKYT-TV that Gary Courtney became disruptive during court proceedings on Monday, and then escaped from the holding room in which he was isolated. Slade says Courtney was handcuffed and shackled at the time.

The jailer says Courtney may have changed from a dark blue jumpsuit to khaki pants and a shirt.

The station did not report the reason why Courtney was in court.
