LA GRANGE, Ky. (WAVE/NBC) - A Kentucky man showed up to court with a tell-tale sign he was on the run. It's something they're still talking about in Oldham County.
Sitting in court Wednesday, Bradley Scherzinger, 29, acted just like a man in custody should. Almost everyone in the courtroom knew that wasn't always the case. A little more than a week before, when he appeared before Judge Jerry Crosby for a domestic violence case, it was supposed to be dismissed, until Scherzinger refused to admit there was probable cause for his arrest in the first place.
Since Judge Crosby saw Scherzinger sitting in court with the victim, and knew that no contact with the victim was a condition of Scherzinger's bond, he ordered him taken into custody. That's when deputies found handcuffs already around one of Scherzinger's wrists.
"He was previously, earlier that night, locked up by the Prospect Police Department for drunk driving and he escaped from them," said Oldham County Deputy Kelly O'Bryant.
