Police prisoner at hospital gets stuck in wall

DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit hospital says a police prisoner who was being treated as a patient tried to escape through the ceiling in his bathroom but got stuck in a wall.

St. John Hospital spokesman Brian Taylor says police and hospital security guards "quickly located and apprehended" the male patient Wednesday.

Taylor says there was never any danger to patients, visitors or other people.

Detroit police didn't immediately say what led to the man's arrest or his need for medical care. Police say they plan to release a statement later Wednesday.
