Kentucky inmate attacks deputy following escape from holding cell

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Some dramatic moments were caught on rolling surveillance cameras in a Kentucky courtroom when an inmate tried to escape.  

Officials say he was being kept in a holding cell. When police tried to get another inmate out of the same holding cell, they say the suspect charged the door and pushed another deputy.  

The two then stumbled into a courtroom. Court officers quickly grabbed him.

Now the suspect is facing attempted escape and assault charges.  Police have not released his name, or initial charges.
