BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A sheriff's deputy who was arrested over the weekend has just escaped from a patrol car at the Central Receiving Facility around 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.

On Wednesday, KCSO official Ray Pruitt said that the window of the patrol car was slightly lowered in the back seat.
Pruitt told 23ABC News that deputies are not trained to get out of handcuffs.
Pruitt said Tucker was able to walk up the ramp from the parking structure and escaped. Pruitt said there were deputies nearby the vehicle, but they did not see Tucker.
