An inmate who left a hospital during treatment has once again been taken into custody.
Officials say that 18 year old Jeffrey Bauman Jr. had been taken to St. Joseph’s hospital in Marshfield for medical treatment. He was in the Vilas County Jail when he claimed of partial paralysis of his legs. He then left the hospital while being treated.
Law enforcement officials located Bauman in Lac du Flambeau early yesterday morning. He fled by vehicle initially, then on foot. He was taken into custody a short time later.
Officials now say he could face additional charges including fleeing an officer and recklessly endangering safety.
