MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

The search is still on for the man who escaped custody on his way to Metro Jail.

30-year-old Reginald Henderson was checking in with his probation officer at the Mobile Community Correction Center off Michael Boulevard. For reasons not released, he was arrested on scene for probation violation.

The director of the correction center tells FOX10 News Henderson was handcuffed and put in the back of a transport car to be taken to jail. We’re told before the car could leave the parking lot, Henderson broke out and ran across Michael Boulevard into the Crossings at Pinebrook apartment complex – all while his hands were still handcuffed behind his back.

Mobile Police were called to the scene. Witnesses in the complex saw Henderson ducking behind cars and hiding in a ditch while officers searched for him.

Witnesses then saw a silver car with rims pull up. Someone inside the car opened the door and let Henderson inside before driving off.

Henderson is no stranger to the law. He's been arrested eleven times in the last eight years. His charges include trafficking marijuana, trafficking stolen identities, harassment, and much more. He was on probation for burglary when this incident occurred.

Court Police are still actively searching for Henderson. Anyone with information should call the Mobile Community Corrections Center at 251-574-3295.
