A man has escaped from the Broward County Courthouse

“Our only focus at this time should be on capturing the escaped inmate and ensuring the safety of the public.  Once he has been captured and public safety restored, a full investigation will be done, all of the facts collected and we will determine how and why this occurred and take any corrective action that is necessary.”  Broward County Mayor Marty Kiar re: escaped inmate from Broward County Courthouse this afternoon.
