Defendant puts on scrubs, walks out of NM hospitalMarch 1, 2013 @ 6:05 am
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man arrested in a drug case is back in custody after donning scrubs and then walking out of an Albuquerque hospital where a police officer had left him unattended.
The Albuquerque Journal ( http://bit.ly/ZHpwst) reports that the officer didn't handcuff 39-year-old Jonathan Kahl at University of New Mexico Hospital because he had swollen hands.
Suspicions were raised when Kahl was seen pushing a hospital cart while wearing blue jeans under the scrubs, but he had already left the hospital by the time the exits were secured.
That happened last weekend. He was back in custody after being arrested Tuesday on suspicion of shoplifting.
